Two days after the original letter home, that sparked this whole debate I received a second letter from the school.
I was handed the letter by my eleven year old son (one of the Star Pupil children who should have been on the trip). His response....
"Well a blue badge makes it all OK???? NOT."
I have to agree with him.
It has been interesting watching this pan out over the last week. I know that many parents from the school have visited my blog for the first time and left their views and in the school playground it is still the main topic of conversation BUT the dynamic has shifted.
Now everyone wants to know why the school has handled this situation so badly. Letters have been sent to the HT and the governors but as far as I know, they are still waiting for a response.
So in conclusion of the last week...
Year 6 children are bitter at the way they have been treated and younger year 3 children are confused about why their promised reward trip has been cancelled.
Parents are losing faith in the school management and the school management have totally let down no only the parents but the children too.
A blue badge sucks.
