My son is 5 and in year 1. He always gets Ill with asthma in winter but improved in January. I told them this when he started school. His attendance in reception was 88%. Now in year 1 its 77% but he got chicken pox in Dec. I even said I would home educate as he will never reach 95% attendance but school talked me out of it.
Now I've got an attendance plan meeting with educational welfare officer and seems I have to explain why he has had time off when I rang up on days he was off sick so its been authorised.
What is this meeting and interference? Have other members had this happen. Thank you as I'm worried.
