Define Fine: Parent Peer Support for School Attendance Difficulties
We are a parent/carer-led organisation set up in response to the growing number of children and young people who experience school attendance difficulties. This is sometimes referred to as ‘school refusal’, or emotionally based school avoidance and may be due to unmet Special Educational Needs & Disabilities including physical or mental illness, either suspected or diagnosed, bullying or issues relating to academic pressure, or even the school environment.
We provide peer support, using our tried and tested resources and to help parents advocate for the support their children and young people need to be able to learn and achieve. We run regular online webinars and workshops to share effective methods of advocacy and requests for support, and work closely with other SEND support groups, and in some areas with the LA and/or SENDIASS.
