Q. One of our SEN pupils is late to class almost every day. We suspect that although a number of different reasons have been given, the real reason is mum’s mental health. It’s rumoured that she is an alcoholic although we have seen no evidence of this other than the punctuality of her daughter. We’re unsure how to approach this.
Q. My school is currently working very hard to address the increasing gap in terms of achievement between our SEND pupils and their classmates. However, I sense that we are being less successful with addressing their self-esteem which, overall, seems to be at an all-time low. What can we do to make our SEND pupils feel good again?
