Today the school phoned up,and informed me my son was excluded for 1 day for quote 'scratching a pupil in class'! He has never been in any trouble before,is top of his class in most subjects,is the least violent person I know.He loves school,and learning. He has been pushed around and bullied on numerous occasions,and the school has done nothing,except 'have a word' with the kids involved. Today,another kid tried to take my sons book off him and rip it,in his attempt to hold on to it they got scratched on the arm.That was enough to get him excluded tomorrow,and a meeting with the deputy head and head of year on Friday. I'm very annoyed,as this will now go on his school record,and I think this will affect him in the future. I'm seriously considering taking the home education route!
