My step son (who I just refer to as my son) has got some diagnosed allergies that mean he has periods of a few days where he will cough and sneeze quite a lot. Obviously a bit worrying for people near him in times like this, but he knows how to cover his nose and mouth and he doesn't have covid.
Despite this the school keep telling him he can't come in. Twice they've made me take him for a thing up his nose, and others they just say he needs to stay at home. Other times our daughter has been ill and hasn't gone to nursery, so they've said he can't go in either. They haven't given him work to do in this time, even though they know he's not actually ill.
We've now had a letter through from the school saying that his attendance isn't good enough, and that as a result over the next 4 weeks they're going to be monitoring him.
Literally every single time he's been off its because one of them has freaked out and said he can't come in. He's then cried because he misses his friends.
I'm considering emailing the school asking if they're having a laugh or was this was an automated letter, as no way can I believe actual human thought has gone in to this. Is this advisable?
