The school is saying it is part of the National Curriculum and therefore have to go on the school trip and are threatening with contacting Welfare Officers

where is the trip and what are the reasons for not going?

my son loves to go on school trips - more often than not because he gets to buy things in the shops.. lol

Your kid in Mr Cusworths class too?

why dont you want him to go? do you feel he wont be cared for properly or something? have you offered to go as a helper?

It's not compulsory, but they are probably within their rights to involve welfare people if they think you are trying to deprive him of something without just reason. if you truly feel he is too young, and you should know best, then you've nothing to worry about - stick to your guns. My son started nursery early and went on a school trip at 3, I was worried, nut more for the staff than for him, I know how naughty he can get when he's tired. But he was very good (they generally are for other people) and had a cracking time. Talk over your concerns with the head/senior teacher person, rather than just being stubborn about it.

if you are worried for your kids welfare on the trip - ask if you can go as parental support, i know our sons school do this.

Our school practically begs for volunteers to go on the trips, and they always pair the kids with their own parents. I think this defies the point of going on a school trip, if it's just like going out with mum/dad, but each to their own.

No,not usually.

as someone has said cant you go as a helper ( need crb clearance first though) ive done it loads of tomes with my two and they love me going ( there friends think im fun !hehe) if you cant go then just think of your poor child being left out as the kids love school outings wether it be up th road to another school or chester zoo, they love it ! especially the bus bit , ( which are all seatbelted now ) and if anything like our school are well organised and the children well supervised !

Is that your reason for not wanting him to go - because you feel he is too young. dont be like that - let him go and enjoy the experience. As others have suggested maybe volunteer to go along with them. My son had trips when he was at nursery and no way would I have stopped him going and having fun.

My son goes on trips with nursery, he is 2...I wasn't worried, they will be well looked after and there will be a lot of helpers!!

If the school is stating that the trip is part of the National Cirriculum and you dont want your child to go... Why is that exactly? Are you in dispute with them in some way over what you feel should be taught or something.

There is a long list why i dont want him to go
I feel he is safer with me
as the world we live in IS A BAD PLASE

my child is not deprieved
and gets everything in life

most of these trips are educational in some way and you should let your son enjoy the experience, we have had a few incidents where children have not been allowed to take part in some trips and it always comes down to religious beliefs of the parents and child involved.
school trips are well organised and supported so safety should not be an issue so dont worry about that or volunteer and go with him.

Can you pm your address and I will send you a supersize bag of cotton wall to wrap your son in. Your going to ruin so much for your son with an attitude like that.

but you send your child to school, you arent with him there so why arent you home educating him? as said by myself and others why dont you offer to go as a helper

So do you feel that all the other children will be unsafe or just your child? They will be similar ages. If you do think they will all be unsafe then you have grounds to really make a fuss. If not - just maybe - you may be getting things a little out of proportion.

it is a bad place, but you cant wrap your kids up in cotton-wool the rest of their lives, they need to take some "knocks & bangs" in life.

You seem to be incredibly reluctant to give relevent information to people you have asked for advice.

Is it this particular trip you do not want your child and why or is it all trips?

^^^^this I thought I was an overprotective parent, you have to let them go at some point, let him experience life, yes there are bad things in the world, but there are also many amazing things out there too. Perhaps you should have home schooled him then, since the world is such a bad place, you know with all those bad kids and bad teachers! missing the smilie with the rolling eyes insert here! I too will offer to send you some cotton wool, clearly your child needs it more than mine!

op u need to relax!

Just saying LOL



i noticed it but couldnt be arsed fixing it lol

welfare or social services are normally involved as a last resort in most cases if any issues cannot be resolved between the school and home partnership teams?

Can you not ask if they need any helpers? I often went along to help on my sons school trips when they were at nursery etc, that way he wont miss out and you can make sure he is ok?

Study suggests that 'dodgy' spelling comes as a result of being excluded from school trips... (some educational snippet somewhere)

It's like shooting fish in a barrel on here tonight, oh where to start (again insert maybe working hotukdeals "smilie" of your choice)
