Worrying or anxiety is a normal feeling that we all experience from time to time. It can even keep us safe from harm or help us perform in difficult situations. However, sometimes anxiety or excessive worrying can become a problem especially when it stops people doing what they want or need to do. Many children and young people worry about school. This is normal. Anxieties are part of life and learning to deal with them is part of growing up. However sometimes a child’s worries may lead to difficulties attending school. If your child has high levels of anxiety and does not want to attend school they may be experiencing Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA)
Please read the EBSA document to support your child around this.
Plymouth parent Carer Voice (PPCV)
The Plymouth Parent Carer Voice (PPCV) brings together parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Plymouth.
PPCV is Plymouth’s official parent carer forum. They are a group of volunteer parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Together they work in partnership with our local authority, to help shape and improve the range of services in education, health and social care for families in the Plymouth area.
Parent Carer Forums like PPCV are run by volunteers and funded with a grant from the Department for Education (DfE). They receive this and other forms of support from ‘Contact’, who work in partnership with the DfE. They are a member of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) from whom they receive regular guidance and support.
