my son 5 1/2 is toilet trained but since he has started schoolthis year has started to wet. we have tried talking to him about it, reward him when he doesnt, a wall chart. If we notice that he needs to go we have to make him go. he has started to lie when he does wet himself. It feels like a never ending battle. Can anyone give us ideas what to do. i am even thinking of taking him out of school.

He culd be doing this for a number of reasons. I would start with talking to the teacher. Is there anything new happening in the household?( in your picture )is that a new baby? It could be because of that and he is looking for attention. Is the bathroom close to the classroom. does he get to caught up in an activity and it gets to late? because that happens with my 6 yr old, occasionally. he gets so tied up that he wants to wait until last minute. I just try to read his body language and remind him to go and if he still doesn't make it. I just tell him accidents happen. He feels bad enough. I used to tell him looks like you waited too long. Now it is going to take longer to get back to it. I never made a big deal. Now he says accidents happen and then changes his clothes.
