A teenage boy has refused to go to school for the past month after being axed from the top sets.
Elijah Pedersen-Adeniji, 13, has not returned to Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy since September 2 after being placed in the lower set of all his subjects.
His father, Olorunfemi Adeniji, said Elijah finished last year with top marks and has always been in the top sets at the Bexley school.So..? Things change. And how we cope with adversity shows our true charact...
The 46 year-old told News Shopper: “The last time he was in school was on September 2 because he has been crying and so down.
“We took him to the doctors and they referred him to child and adolescent mental health services for counselling. The whole situation is not nice – he just keeps crying.”*rolls eyes*
Mind you, might be genetic!
Mr Adeniji added that both he and his wife are also having to take counselling sessions because of the stress caused by the situation, which has caused him to take time off work.I bet his employer loves that!
A spokeswoman for Haberdashers’ refused to comment on Mr Adeniji’s allegations.Probably unprintable anyway.
