School made to apologise after disciplining boy

A school has been forced to write a letter of apology to an 11-year-old boy who was punished for being disruptive.

The boy was dropped from the football team, banned from going to a Royal Albert Hall concert and lost his lunchtime breaks.

His family complained that he was suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and teachers should have taken that into account.

If the parents are so concerned why didn’t they take him to a special school so they could deal with pupils with ADHD? If there isn’t a special school to deal with those pupils one should be made because I don’t see why the education of other students should suffer just because the teachers are spending all their time dealing with this particular child.
