Justice for a single mum of 4 that has been put on tag cause her 13 yr old sons attendance
PLEASE SHARE... This quote is from Karen's sister Rebbecca "So because my 13 year old nephew (who has disabilities and anger problems) refuses point blank to go to school because of bullying they TAG his mum.. He's bigger and a lot stronger then her and lashes out, She's dragged him to the bus stop and he runs of the bus, She's took him into school and he's ran out, She's tried everything with no help from anyone. She is also a single mum with 3 other children (who all have good attendance) yet this is the help she gets!! A 31 year old woman who has never been in trouble in her life!! a mum trying her best!! To be humiliated like this!! Such a amazing government!! Karen is my sister and everyday I see her struggle bringing 4 children up single handed every day.. She tries her best by her children and wants them to have the best in life, education included.. Daniel a senco centre for the first 5 years of school age and its because of government cut backs the centre was closed, he was then thrown into a main Stream school where he struggled daily to be accepted and keep up with the work by pupils and teachers, Karen then appealed for him to go to a specialist secondary school but because the of the shortages in the area got knocked back.. Daniel was then forced to attend a main Stream secondary school where he was bullied because he can't communicate properly, every day was a nightmare for him yet Karen still sent him whilst continuing to appeal for a place.. that place never came!! He then refused to go to school because he couldn't do the work/got bullied and teased.. He's a 13 year old boy and had a number of disabilities as well as lashing out. She's took him to school most days yet he runs out, She's dragged him on the bus yet he runs off, She's rang the school asking them for help but got none.. All this whist getting 2 other children to 2 different schools single handedly whilst looking after a toddler!! My sister needs help not punishment, made to look a criminal for doing the best for her children!! This has left her feeling humiliated and worthless.. this is disgusting in my eyes!! "
Petition to UK Parliament
MAKE FIBROMYALGIA A DISABILITY
Suffers with fibromyalgia struggle with the condition on a daily basis, they often do not receive the medical help or support that could be provided. America take the lead with Fibromyalgia research and treatment but the UK are not following suit. As a fellow fibro sufferer I believe it is time that we all join together and fight to get the debilitating condition recognised in parliament as a disability at last, also to gain better treatment and support. please visit the web page at: www.letsgetfibrointoparliament.simplesite.com Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/fibrogetintoparliamentmakeachange/?rc=p Twitter page: @FibroPetition Instagram: @fibromyalgialetsgetto YouTube: Fibromyalgia- get it to parliament #FIBROFIGHTERS #STANDUP #MAKETHEMHEAR@FibroPetition Please note that there is also a paper petition
Petition to CEO of Scot Rail
Scot Rail - Make Young Scot Card Discounts last up till the end of the age of 21.
Students pay a ridiculous amount of money on transport a year and a lot of us are living only just above or on the poverty line. I feel students should still be able to get a 50% discount using their Young Scot Cards up till the end of being 21 years old as a majority of us are studying till then. Students study to be able to progress towards a job, we are very limited financially and struggle. I want Scot Rail to try tackle this problem and change their discount system for Young Scot Card Holders and boost the age from 18 up till the end of being 21 years old as it would assist us to be able to have an education as a lot of us have to travel with Scot Rail to get to School's, Colleges, University's e.t.c. We roughly study for about three years after coming out of high school, at the end of sixth year. I personally travel between Greenock West and Glasgow and have to get on a train 5 times a week as I am a Full Time Student. I pay £1,560 a year which is £30 a week when purchasing a weekly ticket, if I was to buy a return ticket it would cost me £8.10 and apparently its cheaper than a single ticket according to the train stations and ticket examiners. That would cost a ridiculous amount of £2,948 a year which I think is ridiculous to ask a student to pay for, this could be used towards students studies, course fees and accommodation. A majority of people I know have to get on a three trains to get to College/University which I could imagine would cost them a fortune. If they still included a 50% discount my train fares would cost £15 a week, at the end of the year it would add up to £780 which is still really expensive, its a massive difference to us and people that have to get a few trains, the discount should also be allowed to be used at peak times as they don't accept them. I emphasise that students are heard out, Im one and Its really important we are able to have our right to an education, transport limits us because of costs. I feel by Scot Rail changing this, it would encourage a lot more customers to use Scot Rail's transport service.
Petition to Theresa May PM
Investigate David Cameron and stop victimising me for whistle blowing
When I started whistle blowing as a teacher at Newham College in East London, I could not have imagined the injustice and corruption I was to face. Despite my efforts, the wrongdoing is still being covered up. I was let down by David Cameron and victimised by the employment tribunal for whistle blowing. As the Government calls on teachers to report concerns, it is in the public interest that they tell you why I was victimised. In July 2016, I raised a complaint that the Prime Minister, David Cameron had breached the ministerial code and brought the House into disrepute. The complaint related to my letters from 2011 to Mr Cameron about whistle blowing and wrongdoing at Newham College as well as injustice and misconduct involving the employment tribunal. I had told David Cameron that data irregularities, the sexual harassment of students and other wrongdoing had been covered up by Newham College and the regulatory agencies. Also, that there was evidence of wider corruption including concerns about the employment tribunal when I brought claims against the College. I can show the tribunal falsified evidence in my case to wrongly accuse me of 'inventing' the student harassment amongst other matters. They did this to cover up perjury and other wrongdoing by Newham College including that I had been injured and harassed for whistle blowing. In response, David Cameron made a referral to the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills in 2011 to investigate Newham College but then he failed to act. When the media highlighted the homophobic scandal and data irregularities at Newham College in 2013 including the use of ‘ghost students’, it was not reported that David Cameron had already made the referral to investigate Newham College but had failed to address the data irregularities, wrongdoing and evidence of wider corruption including the misconduct of the employment tribunal. Consequently the public have still not been told the truth. Also despite David Cameron's referral to BIS apparently providing evidence of contempt by Newham College and the covering up by the tribunal committed from 2010 to 2013, the Government failed to help me ensure that evidence of perjury and wrongdoing was given to the police. Instead as the media were reporting concerns about Newham College in 2013, David Cameron and the Government were allowing me to be wrongly accused and victimised by the tribunal based on falsified evidence and for Newham College to continue to commit perjury with impunity. These are not acceptable standards of conduct from those in Government, the tribunal or in public office. Mr Cameron’s resignation does not end the Government’s duty to uphold the rule of law or to ensure a fair and impartial tribunal service either through the Lord Chancellor's role or by other means. The Government must address the false allegations based on perjury and misconduct by the tribunal and stop the public being misled. However, despite undermining the commitment the Government claims for whistle blowers, women, safeguarding and the rule of law, my case shows that there are no effective means of holding the Government or the tribunal to account or therefore of ending my victimisation for whistle blowing. To protect students, communities and whistle blowers, this must change. Only when the Government and tribunal tell the truth about my case will the victimisation stop so that accountability can begin. They will not do this without your help. Please sign my petition to ask Theresa May to ensure these matters are fully investigated and that the truth is finally told. It is in the public interest that the failings of the Government and the employment tribunal in this case are explained. Thank you.

Save Whalley Village Library
Lancashire County Council needs to save £200m by 2020/21 as a result of ongoing government cuts to its budget and rising demand for services. Councillors are being asked to give the go-ahead for a 12-week consultation period, inviting comments and suggestions about the proposals, before taking a final decision later this year. Subject to the Cabinet agreeing to proceed with a consultation process, it is due to begin on Wednesday, May 18 for 12 weeks. Whalley Library and Spring Wood Children’s Centre is one of the buildings earmarked by the county as risk. The library is one of the vital and active hubs of the community of Whalley and its surrounding villages. A community asset, not just a place to hold books, its a venue for the villagers to meet, retreat and learn. In the Ribble Valley, our rural services are being cut, affecting the lives of all who live there. Please sign this petition to save our community library, and please make sure you join the library and use its facilities, to show that this is a vital service for the area.
Petition to Nicky Morgan MP
Every school-based Support Staff, Deserves 52 weeks pay and they are GIVEN RECOGNITIONS they Deserve. Pay your school-based Support Staff/Teaching Assistants they don't get paid enough.
Oh no not another topic on school-based Support Staff, seems like a very hot topic in Schools locally and nationally. (Teachers always appreciates support from TA's) A recent publication from the EEF outlines the most effective methods of deploying teaching assistants, there is research being conducted into their best utilisation, and the national occupational standards are being reviewed. https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/news/teaching-assistants-should-not-be-substitute-teachers-but-can-make-a-real-d/ Our school-based Support Staff, are not a “mums army” but education’s hidden professionals and are a vital integral part of our education system and should be recognised and paid what they Deserve. Tories and their fan club have sought to undermine the work of school-based Support Staff, for the last decade. Along with the evidence though is clear, where school support staffs are deployed correctly, they play a major positive role in improving educational outcomes. Today classroom support staffs are vital to the modern school environment and in meeting the educational and wider needs of today's school children. All school-based Support Staff, are not a “mum’s army” as Michael Gove so insultingly calling them. They are education’s hidden professionals and are a vital integral part of our education system and should be recognised and paid what they deserve for 52-week pay. The first thing Gove did was to abolish the school support staff negotiating body, having the audacity to call it a QUANGO. This malicious act denied nearly half a million, mainly female, hard working people the simple right to a national framework for their jobs, career structure and pay. Now they are listening to and quoting their fan club’s mantra. Apparently, according to them, you do not add value to Educational Outcomes. In fact, you can actually have a negative impact on pupils’ results, despite all the credible research and reports in the public domain. For example the one by the Institute of Education that showed that the more school-based Support Staff, has the better results its students achieve. Oh, no he won’t pay attention to that–that would cost him money, not save him money. He must understand we are teaching and supporting our children. Yes, you are Education’s Hidden Professionals. You are a vital, integral part of our education system, and you deserve to be recognised as such. Even the Government’s own inspectors (OFSTED) have identified and highlighted the professionalism of support staff in our schools and the positive difference you make to our children’s education. We want to raise standards of teaching and learning by ensuring learning support workers are appropriately qualified and skilled. The evidence though is clear, where school support staffs are deployed correctly; they play a major positive role in improving educational outcomes. Classroom support staffs are vital to the modern school environment and in meeting the educational and wider needs of today's school children. Ensure that support staff receives fair and consistent pay and conditions appropriate to the overall role and responsibilities they undertake. Add your support so every school-based Support Staff, get the professional recognition they deserve. Picture from http://www.tafocus.co.uk
Petition to Cllr Barry Thomas, Leader, Powys County Council
Overturn decision to close Gwernyfed High School
Students at Gwernyfed High School have been producing improving exam results with some going on to Oxbridge and the top Russell Group of Universities. No pupil has left without a qualification in the last 5 years and every student has been supported to achieve their full potential. The school has a site and facilities which are the envy of many others and has consistently managed its finances by running a balanced or surplus budget. As a rural school it has close links with its communities, with many local groups using the building and being involved in the daily life and education at the school. This will all go if Powys County has its way with a “knock on” damaging effect on our communities. The local authority's plan is to amalgamate the school with the high school in Brecon on their site. Currently that school is in special measures and burdened with a massive deficit budget and buildings which are in very poor condition. The overall plan is for a new £20 million plus building to be erected under a new name on the same site which would mean the special measures provision could be wiped out. Deficits can only legally be written off when a school closes, which it will do for 24 hours, so the deficit budget will disappear at a time when the council is savagely cutting its budget. There is no provision for achieving improved governance to ensure this situation does not happen again in the future.We do not want to see Brecon High School close. We want to see it reach a stage when its educational standards and financial management reflect those at Gwernyfed and where it’s students and staff have a decent building in which to work together. This must not be achieved by sacrificing the quality of education received by students at Gwernyfed High School. It has taken many years to achieve those high standards and any new school will take time and hard work to provide the education, in its broadest sense, to which all our young people are entitled. Oh! Yes! The picture above is of Gwernyfed.
