Concerns about fibromyalgia diagnosis

My daughter became ill at the beginning of this year and has been given a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. She is in year 10 and has missed so much school and I am worried about her education and the lack of it due to her condition.

This must be very worrying for you all, Year 10 is an important year. If possible we would suggest in the the first instance you talk to the school SENCo about your concerns and see what the school can offer by way of support. If she is missing school for extended periods, 3 weeks or more, then she is entitled to home tuition.

However the home school is responsible for ensuring that she is supported to access as much education as she can despite her medical condition.
