Special Education Teacher - Northampton , Northamptonshire
There's no way I'm going to school, you can't make me!
For young people with social, emotional and mental health needs, the very idea of going to school fills them with anxiety, dread and fear. School for most children is a place to learn, have fun and socialise but for those with barriers to learning it can feel like a nightmare. The longer they're out of school, the worse it gets. As time progresses, their feelings of loneliness and despair only grow, and they fall further behind.
