She has ME and part of her care plan agreed with her consultant is that she refrains from PE until such time that participation will not cause a relapse (amongst other things).

It should be noted that my niece does not have an IEP. </font><font size="3"> </font><font size="3">However, for the second time this school year her PE teacher has insisted that she join in. For the second time she has had a relapse. The PE teacher appears to disregard the information that my brother is passing on to her with regards on how to manage his daughter’s ME, and thinks that if my niece is having a good day then she can join in. The results are catastrophic. Today my niece cannot dress herself as she is in so much pain. </font><font size="3"> </font><font size="3">My brother, sister-in-law and I have all spoke to my niece assuring her that it is OK to tell the teacher that she cannot participate and if the teacher insists that it is acceptable to leave the lesson and seek a member of the SLT, which the SLT have welcomed. </font><font size="3"> </font><font size="3">So my questions are: </font>1.
