Tom wasn’t attending school until we began to work with him and his parents to discover that his Mum was suffering from some mental health issues. We referred her to Social Services to get her the practical support that the family needed and began to work with Tom on a one to one basis. As a result, Tom’s attendance at school went up to 96%.
We anticipate that Tom will need to continue to see his therapist for another academic year. This would require funding of up to £432 per term.
