Hi there @Confused86 and welcome to the forums. It sounds like your son is having a lot of difficulty, it's great you're doing what you can to support him and that he also has the support of his manager. If you're looking for information about the legal system, you may want to contact the Dept of Education, or give LegalAid a call. We also have some information about school refusal that could be worth a read through. 

Have you spoken to him much about what might be going on for him? Understanding a bit more about why he is finding it hard to engage with school could help guide the next steps that you could take.
