Wondering if anyone can clarify the following situation as we can'tseem to find the information anywhere else...We have just had 2 children withdrawn from our school (for reasons on the playground of which there is no evidence). The parents say this is a temporary withdrawal, but have not said for how long, and are requesting that we provide work every day at 3.30 to be collected for the children to do. As a staff we are reluctant to do this (due to the circumstances surrounding the withdrawal of the children) and particularly as the younger child is in Reception and so would be mostly doing practical work were she at school. Are we legally obliged to provide work in this situation or is it down to the discretion of the school? We don't want to not comply with legal requirements but at the same time would rather not provide worksheets if we don't have to (which is what has been requested) as we really don't believe that they will be productive for the chidlren. Thanks for any help!
