My son's head is saying that he can't go in to school tomorrow because he had a meltdown today.  He didn't misbehave or do anything wrong, he didn't disrupt any lessons, just wanted to be on his own.  He was feeling very down & spoke negatively about himself when repeatedly questioned by a staff member, so school didn't want him there.  Can they do this?

This sounds so very wrong.  Their attitude is enough to alienate him from school altogether.  I've no idea whether they're allowed to do this, but I would have thought that children would have protection from that kind of treatment under autism and disability laws.  The school are legally obliged to make 'reasonable adjustments' and there's nothing reasonable, sensible or logical about excluding him from school for simply being who he is: a boy with autism.
