Something upsetting

We had a parent at our After School Club who fell out with the school and left without telling us they were going and without paying our bill and we have ended up taking her to court for the money.

 

However, what upsets me is that there were child protection concerns about the children. When we spoke to the school we were told that, as they are now home schooled, there is absolutely no system in this area to keep an eye on them. The records are stored with the old school and they may have a visit every six months but nothing else. I think that is horrific and I can't imagine what life is now like for those children.

 

I'm quite happy to believe home schooling could be fine but certainly not in this case so how on earth did she get permission to do it?

Were the child protection concerns taken further - surely even though the children aren't in school now social services still have to 'keep an eye'. If you are genuinely concerned about their welfare I would definitely contact someone? As for home schooling - I haven't a clue how that works sorry but sounds a little crazy in this instance :-(

The problem is I have spoken to someone and it is known that there are issues but there is nobody in the system to keep an eye on them. I hope it is different in other areas but not here.

If you have concerns for these children contact the NSPCC

You don't need permission to home school a child unless they have a statement of SEN.

If you have informed social services of your concerns you've done all you can apart from asking the NSPCC for advice as per Sunnyday's post.
