School & Me

emotionally based school avoidance

We have joined forces with the amazing Be Happy Resources to bring you a workbook to help children aged 5-10 with school related worry and anxiety. 

If your child is anxious about school it might look like...

  • having trouble sleeping or worrying at bedtime
  • not wanting to get ready in the morning
  • a change in their work at school or home
  • a change in behaviour- getting more angry/sad at school or home/becoming more withdrawn
  • struggling at drop-off time
  • having meltdowns after school (even though they might seem "fine" when at school)
  • feeling unwell regularly such as having headaches or stomach aches

How we can help...

In collaboration with our own children we have come up with activities to help understand why your child may be struggling with school and to help them work through their worries, along with games and practical resources that can be used every day to support your child.

It includes:

  • A child-friendly introduction to anxiety relating to school and Emotionally Based School Avoidance
  • 21 engaging activities which can be worked through at your own pace together (and can be used to have discussions with teachers to support your children at school)
  • An accompanying parent/caregiver guide for each activity
  • Further reading and support contact details
