Costing a school 'refuser'

Updated: Jul 4, 2020

In association with Dr Mara Violato at the Nuffield Centre for Population Health (Oxford University) we are hoping to apply for funding for a scoping review and survey to pull together the costs of school 'refusal'. These costs are extensive – from the resources a school & local authority might put into addressing absence, to a range of costs borne by the family (including one parent often having to give up work, private assessment, legal representation) and the potential economic and social costs of unresolved, long term mental health conditions.
