Coffee and Chat – Emotionally Based School Non-Attendance (EBSNA)

Emotionally Based School Non-Attendance (EBSNA) is a term used to describe the difficulty children and young people experience in attending school due to emotional reasons, such as stress, anxiety and/ or feeling overwhelmed. This can result in prolonged periods of absence from school.

Join us for this Coffee and Chat and grow your understanding of EBSNA as we talk about the challenges and how best to support young people and their families who are experiencing EBSNA.

Delivered with the support of Mindworks, Educational Psychology Service and YMCA East Surrey.
