I'm not sure there is an answer to this one but I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had this issue. I have a parent who has been in and out of school with a range of complaints, concerns and worries for the last 3 years. We, along with range of other professionals, have supported and addressed where appropriate and confronted where necessary. At the end of the latest email , out of the blue, she has said she doesn't want the children to go on any off site trips. I have started with discussing the value and enjoyment etc but she seems convinced they will be killed or kidnapped. Ironic really when one of the children was involved in a life threatening accident at home when a toddler. I will add that all of her children have been happily and regularly going on trips all their school lives so far. Not only is this a real tragedy for the children but we quite often go on whole school trips which is a real headache. I know it's her right, and our duty to provide alternative provision, but I think it's a real shame. So... Anyone had this before? Any suggestions?
