Fiona Parry started this petition to UK Parliament and

My name is Fiona and I have four daughters, three of which have additional needs. One is diagnosed with Autism, one is on the Autism pathway awaiting assessments and another about to be referred to the hospital with Autistic traits. 

I have fought the education system for 11 years now ever since my 15 year old started nursery, “she’s fine in school” being the most commonly used phrase! It was in year 6 that she went rapidly downhill and couldn’t cope at all and we were told by the school that she will be better off at home than being upset in school..4 and a half years out of school and she has just started going into school for two hours a week, has a tutor at home funded by her ehcp and will be sitting her GCSEs this school year....because we didn’t stop fighting for her but, who do I punish for the education system failing her? 

My youngest daughter is now in year 6 and is struggling and although support has been put in place in school, it doesn’t help me get her to school and despite me constantly reaching out for help I am now being sent letters warning me that i will be fined and possibly taken to court if she doesn’t attend. I will fight this though just like I always do because all I do is try for my girls.

I want to see a change in the system, I want to see support for parents of children with difficulties, I want to help parents who are in a similar situation to myself who don’t just sit and encourage their children to stay off school! Who just want their children to be listened to, educated and supported  through their difficulties. 

Stop punishing parents/carers who’s children can’t cope in school for whatever reason. 

I, like many other parents/carers, Would love to see our children just be happy and settled, it’s no life being indoors every day full of worry and fear! 

Don’t take us to court because our children can’t cope. Help us to help them and make their future a hopeful and promising one, 

life with a child who has difficulties is challenging, I have three children with various complex issues. I don’t want or need to be punished. The laws need to be looked at and changed around the circumstances to which it’s not ok to prosecute such parents as myself. 

Please support myself and others like me by signing my petition and we can use our voices together.

Thankyou so much 

Fiona.
