Soiling in 4year old
4

Silkmum17 · 08/11/2021 14:08

Hi, new member here!
My DD has had an issues with soiling on and off for a while. It’s something that we are trying to sort out. However, I was pulled aside when I went to collect her from the after school club to say that she’s had too many accidents and that she can’t go back until it’s sorted as they are not allowed to help clean her up and would have to ring me every time this happens.
Has anyone had the same issue/ what have you done? And advise to get this resolved asap very gratefully received

Chronic constipation can cause this and is very common in kids that age. GP can give you something to mix in a drink for them every day and it usually sorts it out. Happened with two of my kids.

Remind them of their responsibilities under the Equality Act and the SEN Code of Practice. If they're OFSTED registered, they have to make adaptations to policy and practice to meet need.

I am in lreland and here a child would get access to a Special Needs Assisant and actually toileting issues is the easiest way to get this. So the assistant does all changes etc. It takes a while to get sanctioned but all the paperwork. Is there anything like that you can access. School should be advising on this.
I presume you have seen your GP already. Could your GP provide medical evidence that your dc has this issue ongoing.

I am a secondary school teacher with a student with chronic constipation in year 7. She has TA support, time out card and plan in place for any accidents.
There is no reason that she should be excluded. As said before. Remind them of the equalities act.
My sister has recently had to complain about her sons treatment at a sixth form due to his chronic skin condition that makes him unable to walk and attend sixth form. His skin cracks and bleeds when he moves.
They told him he was not suitable for a mainstream college and should find somewhere else due to his skin condition!
She wasn't happy! And now has a council case against them for discrimination.
Don't give up. Unfortunately this will probably be a long battle. Good luck!
