Integrated Services for LearningESMA

The Education Support for Medical Absence (ESMA) support children and young people who are unable to attend school temporarily because of medical reasons. The teams work closely with the school to minimise the disruption to the child’s education and to support their re-integration as soon as possible. As well as schools the teams work with parents, pupils and other professionals to ensure children and young people’s education continues as normally as possible.

Contacts for ESMA and support is available here:
