Hi, This is strange incident. Both my children go to a private school and a mum at the school told me what happened the other day. When picking up her son one day, she arrived a few minutes early and waited in the hall when she noticed a persistent cry. The hall was empty, so after some time she went to find out where the cry was coming from. She found a colleague of her son (from early years!) in a room, alone, UNSUPERVISED, crying desperately, and he begged her to open the door. The child was really upset, she didn't know whether he was hurt so she opened the door. The child wasn't hurt but was very upset and continued to cry, and doesn't want to go back to school since then. SO: the school is using a room as an isolation room for children as young as early years, and leave them there unsupervised (my girls know nothing about it). It is very upsetting for us, parents. Apparently this happened 3 working days ago, and as of today the parents got no explanation or apology from the school regarding what happened. They are angry and reported it to the police. To be honest, the head of the prep school is the most arrogant person ever. The teachers are ok, but the head is just unbelievable, never says hello, never smiles etc. you know the type. Now I am seriously thinking about taking both my daughters out of the school, but I have no options! We are on a waiting list for another school, but it might take years to get in there. I might even put my kids into state school. How can I trust a school if they do such things? (I assume the child was misbehaving, but still that is not an excuse to leave him alone unsupervised given his age). I don't even think they are allowed to do that!
