A TEACHING assistant at St George’s School is believed to have been suspended.
It follows an alleged disciplinary incident on April 30 involving a pupil and the boy’s parents are furious about the length of time it took social services to inform them.
Debbie Hawkins said she was told of the incident outside the school involving her 12-year-old son, George, who has autism, epilepsy and global developmental delay, nearly a week later, on May 6.
She was told the teaching assistant had been suspended the day after the incident for further investigations.
Mrs Hawkins and her husband, Glenn, were shocked to discover meetings between a number of authorities had been held prior to them being informed, particularly as Mrs Hawkins is a lunchtime supervisor and governor at the school.
“We feel let down and we want some answers because we should have been told about this much sooner,” said Mrs Hawkins.
Asked if a member of staff at the school had been suspended, the Isle of Wight Council said it could not comment on staff issues but said the matter was under investigation and proper procedures had been followed.
The police confirmed they had referred the complaint back to the Isle of Wight Council because further action was deemed inappropriate.
“George has been through a lot in the last few months and there are no excuses for the way this situation has been handled,” said Mrs Hawkins.
