This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government

Petition Staff training and mandatory support plan for school students with M.E.

M.E. is one of the main causes of long term school absences in the UK. A third of all Children and Young People under the age of 25 with M.E. are unable to participate in full time education or employment.

More details

Education is a human right but it’s been taken away from people with this disability because schools can’t accommodate and support their needs. That needs to change by implementing staff training programs to teach/educate on M.E and students to have support plans put in place suited to them and tailored to suit the individual.
