Kristen Watson, 15, stopped going to The Beacon School, in Picquets Way, Banstead in June after feeling bullied.
The family claim they were advised to take her off the school roll.
Over the summer she has been rejected by eight other schools but has "built bridges" with some of those at the Beacon who upset her and now desperately wants to return.
But the school will not take her back.Oh, wait, I have just the thing!
Of the bullying, she said: "They were my friends but they decided to turn against me. I was shocked. I didn’t think what was going to happen when I decided I didn’t want to go back."No, clearly. You just thought teenage tantrums were so cool, and there are, like, no consequences ever! Innit?
I don't know quite where you get it fro...
Her father Andy Watson said after a meeting at the school in June an education welfare officer advised his wife in confidence to take her off roll so she could get into another school.
He said: "It’s totally backfired. We’re in limbo. My daughter is so depressed. It’s terrible. Nobody has held up their hands and taken responsibility for telling us to take her off the roll."Now I see where you get it from...
In an email to the family, Martin Healy, South East lead for Access to Education at Surrey County Council, said the school had deemed her "hard to place" under the IYFAP protocol.Well, yes. I just bet they have. I bet this newspaper article hasn't done anything to assuage that, either...
Her family don't sound terribly bright. Is leaving education a year early going to make much difference except to her social life?
Another story where there is more there than is being said.
A whole school area does not ban a bastard because THEY are getting bullied in ONE school.
What was HER part in this, besides resigning?
Missing school will probably be beneficial to her literacy, if the examples of English used by the 'professionals' are typical. Reading even a few snippets of their crap makes the heart sink.
I was quite disappointed when I clicked on the link. The girl was quite pretty,no stupid name,the parents have the same surname,no obvious tatoos on any of them,no fatties either.
Oh well shouldn't stereo-type should we?
"Is leaving education a year early going to make much difference except to her social life?"
I guess not!
"What was HER part in this, besides resigning?"
That's a very good point.
"Reading even a few snippets of their crap makes the heart sink."
Yup. It's even more depressing when you catch a university graduate or teacher training college product on one of those afternoon quiz shows.
Their breadth of knowledge is...well, rather narrow.
"I was quite disappointed when I clicked on the link. The girl was quite pretty,no stupid name,the parents have the same surname,no obvious tatoos on any of them,no fatties either."
I know! I wondered if the newspaper was resorting to stock images...
