I have just heard from some colleagues that a child who has been excluded permanently from another school may end up in my year 5 class next year. My headteacher is resisting the pressure from the LEA to take this child saying that the 1 space available in next September's Yr 5 year group, is being saved for an existing Yr 4 child presently off-role, who is expected to return then. I am worried that this may not be enough and the child will end up in my class. The child in question is supposed to be perfectly fine but his mother is a 'nightmare'. In the school from which the child has been excluded she was constantly making a huge amount of trouble on a daily basis, with each successive encounter becoming progressively worse. It finaly ended with her making allegations that her child was being sexually abused by his female teachers. The whole affair ended with the police being involved and teaching staff resigning due to breaking under the pressure of dealing with this imbalanced woman. The allegations where totally false. I have been told that the woman in question has in no way changed in her attitude and that she loves drama. I am starting to imaging that this woman has some kind of 'Munchausen by proxy' syndrome and fulfills her graving for attention through her son. I would appreciate any advice on how to deal practically with this situation should the worse case seniaro occur.
