Across the world, there have been reports of growing rates of school refusal following the COVID-19 pandemic. School refusal can negatively impact students’ learning and achievements and place them at risk of leaving school early.

School refusal can also have longer term impacts on children and young people’s social and emotional development and mental health into adulthood. Dealing with a child or young person’s school refusal can be a source of significant stress and conflict for families. This presentation will explore the latest research with a focus on what works for this complex issue.
