I Can’t Go To School Today (BBC Learning, 2016) has won a BAFTA Children’s Awards in the category Learning – Primary. The ceremony was held at the Roundhouse, London, on Sunday 20 November.
I Can’t Go To School Today is a series of animated documentaries for BBC exploring the experiences of children living with different illnesses and conditions. Using the testimonies of six young people, Mosaic Films worked with animators to tell their story visually.
Each of these films tells of the experiences of a young person whose life is markedly different from their peers, and who have all taken time off school because of their illness.
The series is available on BBC Bitesize.
