Jason Titley started this petition to Prime Minister

A lot of children cope bravely with illness or disability. This often means time off school for appointments or treatment. This is enough for the children to cope with without missing out on rewards at school for being marked absent when receiving medical treatment. 

I have had personal experience where a child was made to sit and watch his classmates have pizza as a reward for high attendance. His only days off where due to hospital appointments with their consultant and medical treatment. 

These brave children should be rewarded not punished for having conditions they have no control over. 

I find this policy is discriminatory against illness and disability and is outdated and out of touch. 

Please help by signing this petition and hopefully we can get this changed.
