Yes, It’s Definitely Not Your Parenting…

A furious mother has slammed a primary school which excluded her son after only four weeks because of his behaviour.

Hmmm, let me guess, a grab-bag of ‘syndromes’ and the flavour-of-the-month affliction/excuse?

Charlotte Waters, of Moulsecoomb, felt “disgusted and let down” after Bevendean Primary School told her that her son Kian, 4 (Ed: chavname alert!), would face a temporary exclusion following an altercation with a student.

Charlotte said Kian has ADHD and high traits of autism as well as hypersensory sensitivity.

*nods* Thought so…

She said: “The support that Kian needs because of his conditions, which we had to fight to have recognised, is simply not available.

“At the moment, either myself or his grandmother has had to sit with him in lessons because the school can’t deal with him.”

I guess dad’s out working, eh? But what about that ‘altercation’ he had with a classmate?

Well, that throws a rather murkier light on it, doesn’t it?

    As the father of an autistic son, I can sympathise to some extent, but there has been a failing here. Either a failing of the mother to inform the school of her son’s issues, or the school and the local education authorities failing to provide the correct environment for the boy given his issues. This should all have been resolved well before he set foot in school, but unfortunately these days it very seldomly is.

    The school are quite right to exclude him until they can either (a) provide a suitable environment for the boy and his classmates or (b) the LEA can provide facilities for him elsewhere. It’s right to exclude him to avoid further issues until he can be assessed.

    Of course that’s common sense, something in short supply these days, especially it seems with his mother. Unless she just wants her 15 minutes of fame and victimhood.

      Autism is a miswiring of the brain. It is not a determinant of poor behaviour.

      With an autistic brother I know that school can be a struggle but it doesn’t mean the child is going to hit another child. My brother never did. The worst moment he had was needing to order the pencils in the art room, and we sat with him while he would do things like that.

      The ‘Kian’ creature is obviously just a noisome brat who has never known discipline or boundaries, the mother likely doesn’t know who the father is. What he needs is a parent with more discipline.

      Yet again though, why can people not properly use apostrophes? It is not to wont for something, but won’t, for goodness sake.

      The schools have a duty of care to all pupils, not just one. And a duty of care to their staff too.

      Few of the parents who take to local rags over these sort of issues seem to care about that…
