Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA) is a term used to describe children and young people (CYP) who experience challenges in attending school due to negative feelings (such as anxiety).
EBSA is commonly associated with emotional and physical distress, and a reluctance to attend school, which can lead to reduced attendance and further anxiety regarding school.
The Educational Psychology (EP) Team are in the process of setting up a weekly drop-in session for schools to discuss their concerns about EBSA in the school. There will be a drop-in for each are hub and it is expected that these will begin after the Autumn half term.
If you have any general enquires about EBSA in the meantime, please email email@example.com and we will try to support you through signposting and/or directing you to appropriate referral pathways.
