MBTC-27-11-12- Natasha Pulley & Terrell Robinson. Bedford. Natasha is complaining about Scott Lower School who put her son Terrell in a taxi meant for another child last Thursday and failed to notice that he had left the schol premises again this today.

A mum is pulling her young son out of his primary school after two incidents which she claims 
compromised his safety.

Natasha Pulley claims that her son Terell Robinson, aged six, was put into a taxi meant for another child by staff at Scott Lower School, in Brickhill last Thursday.

And after making a complaint, and being assured that safety measures were being examined, Ms Pulley dropped Terell off on Monday only for him to run back out of school and into the path of her car.

Terell was not injured and the school have launched an investigation, but the mum says that she is looking for a new school for her son.

She said: “If he had got out of the taxi and the driver hadn’t stayed to watch him go into a house he wouldn’t have known who to speak to or what to do.

“I’m going to take this as far as I can because to put safeguards into place.”

On the Thursday Ms Pulley claims staff were unaware which taxi company the cab was from.

Following the incident she spoke with school staff who said that new procedures would be put in place. But she claims she lost faith in the school.

She said: “On Monday two staff were on the gate when he arrived, but he had forgotten his lunchbox. I watched him walk right up the path.

“He has been upset about this and he pretended that he was sick because he didn’t want to go to school. I’m not sending him back.”

A spokesman for the school said: “In relation to these incidents, we have launched a full investigation and appropriate action will be taken for anyone found not to be following our procedures which ensure our pupils’ safety.”
