Out of the blue, I've just had a call from the headteacher at my son's school, where he's a weekly boarder, to say that, as a result of yesterday evening's conseil de classe, my son will not be accepted back in September. The decision is not based on his test results/class average - I was told these were 'satisfait', but rather resulting from his behaviour.
Let me be absolutely honest, he's no angel, but his last sanction was 4 May 2012, swiftly followed by a meeting with his prof principal and one other teacher, which saw a tremendous improvement (or so we thought), in both marks and behaviour. We've had no warning whatsoever of this bombshell of a decision and wonder what, if anything we can do to appeal against the decision. I fail to understand why, 3 days before term finishes, we're told he won't be accepted for 5eme.
Do any SFN members have experience of this kind of behaviour? Is there an official appeal process and if so, what do we do? Should we have been warned this decision was on the cards?
Any advice SFN'ers?
