YOUR QUESTIONS

Home tuition for student who has frequent short absences

Home tuition for student who has frequent short absences

Can home tuition happen if the pupil does not have the stated 3 consecutive weeks of absence, but who has frequent short absences due to a chronic illness?

Yes, this needs to be negotiated with the school and LAs have put in support for pupils depending on their needs.

Help for boy diagnosed with type 1 diabetes

Help for boy diagnosed with type 1 diabetes

My grandson who is 11 has just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Unfortunately he is not coping with this very well. He has always had a very bad temper and has been quite uncontrollable at times. Now he has taken to smashing up his room and he is hating school and it's getting more difficult to get him to go, his mother has just managed too. His mother is a single parent and I'm not sure how long her mental health can stay stable. She really needs some help, what can you advise please? If you cannot could you put us in touch with someone that can?

Sorry to hear that your grandson is not coping well with his diagnosis - the specialist nurses for diabetes are a great support for families and schools - as children find it more difficult to deal with a new diagnosis if families feel worried.
