School concerns over AWOL boy "taken seriously" says DESC

Mum claims child left school unnoticed 

Concerns raised by a mum on social media after her seven-year-old son left school without being noticed by teachers are being "taken seriously" by the education department.

The post on Facebook says the child, who's severely autistic and non-verbal, left school on Monday and was found near his home.

Manx Radio contacted the department and was told it was aware of the issue.

However, the DESC adds it's unable to comment further on individual cases.
