Education Funding Agency to consider complaint over Mini-Cheddars boy Riley’s “unlawful exclusion”
The sorry tale of Riley Pearson, excluded from Colnbrook C of E over the now notorious mini-cheddars incident, continues with news that the Education Funding Agency are investigating.
The Education Funding Agency are looking into the complaint against Colnbrook headteacher Jeremy Meek and executive headteacher Paul McAteer, the Pearson family revealed a few days ago.
230 people have now signed the online petition on change.org instigated by the Pearson family demanding disciplinary action against the school’s leadership following the “unlawful” exclusion of their son Riley in February.
… the school have still not responded to the unlawful withdrawal of Jayden, which is well out of order
The petition was targeted at Peter Lauener, Chief Executive of the Education Funding Agency; Sir Michael Wilshaw, Head of OFSTED; and the Rt Hon Sir Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Education.
Steve Pearson says the family should know the outcome in due course but that the school has still not decided whether to re-admit Riley’s younger brother.
Mr Pearson urged villagers to contact both headteachers to “remind them of their failings over the two boys”.
