Tara Tanham says she was on her way to pick up her daughter, Gypsy-Angel, from after-school club at St Catherine’s Academy last Thursday when she received a call from a teacher to tell here the girl had “absconded”.But all's well that ends well, even for kids with egregious chavnames:
Gypsy-Angel was found safe shortly afterwards at a park in Waggon Road, but Ms Tanham says the situation left her feeling “physically sick” and has criticised the school for not calling the police and advising her to call 101 after a search.But how did she come to 'abscond'? Come to think of it, isn't that a rather odd choice of words?
“They’ve tried to put it down to her behaviour but that’s just not right,” she said.
“Her behaviour sometimes can be out of control but even if she was kicking off with them, it’s not acceptable that they have allowed a six-year-old child to leave school.”Ah. That gives us a bit more information about this situation than Tara might perhaps realise, doesn't it?
