Lincolnshire’s Emotional Based School Avoidance (EBSA) pathway has been developed in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders, including parent and carers, mental health colleagues, educational settings, including mainstream schools and alternative provision setting, educational psychology and local authority staff.

The pathway sits within Lincolnshire's social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) Strategy as a key aim to ensure that children and young people in Lincolnshire are supported in their school settings to access high quality inclusive education and enjoy good mental health and resilience.
