Why is my child refusing to go to school?

Children refuse to attend school for all sorts of reasons. They are usually related to an event (or series of events) in school, that have led to the taking control of the situation themselves and expressing their feelings by wanting to avoid the source of the difficulty.
I would advise you to talk to the school, as priority (without betraying whatever your child has confided in you). Explain the difficulties you are having and ask them to help you. Schools have access to a wealth of support including counselling support , school nurses and family support workers.
