my ds has been bullied at school and is refusing to go.i think he has other problems that need sorted out before i can put him back to school but just thought i would see if anyone else had anything to do with the inclusion officer.He is 11.

If he is not attending school but remains on their role, they have a duty to follow through certain processes. So the inclusion officer will be either the ESW or possibly somebody dealing with Special social/educational needs etc: basically to help your child to be "included" back into school life.
They will probably want to discuss the situation, whether or not ds is returning or will be educated elsewhere (and if so, where/how) and how they can help him to return if he is to do so eg: perhaps on a part-time basis to begin with, or working in a nurture unit for a week or two or something.

thanks for that girls.the family centre have a councilor who help(its a playgroup i go to) if u have any probs,i was all ready to deregister my ds is is being bullied again.he will not go back to this school its pretty bad .he has always had social probs always loud ,aggressive,angry,one min very happy the next angry.he says what he thinks even when people can hear him ,hes very intelligent.but high maintenance.we have tried the two hrs a day soon as he walked in class the class booed and started calling him names.in the past he has suffered from depression,anxiety attacks,migraines,constipation need i go on.the depression was side effect from med he took for migraines.he finds it very hard to keep friends as he gets angry so quick he can go fron 1-10 straight away.he have been referred to camhs hes also gets very hyper in big groups and gets rough.the school said they would ring two weeks ago and havent bothered.i am starting to think maybe he has special needs as in the social aspect and just needs some stratagies to cope with name calling and to help him not be to impulsive.i know i could teach him short term but i think any longer i would have nervous breakdown

that's awful - tbh I'm amazed the senco hasn't got involved before now

if his problems integrating are that severe he definitely needs a statement to help him access the curriculum - you can apply yourself for him to be assessed which is actually better than waiting for the school to apply as you have the right of appeal should you be turned down

get your gp to chase the CAMHS referral and get onto the school SENCO - the special needs ed forum here should be able to help too

good luck
