excluded from nativity


im totally gutted today as ive just learnt that my son will not be participating in his pre schools nativity.
His teacher has said she thinks it will be too much for him. He has learning difficulties and attention issues.
I was very curious to see how he would have taken part knowing how he is and i thought it would only be a very small involvement but i was totally unprepared for this.

i was so looking forward to seeing his first nativity

Thats not fair at all, his teacher is supposed to be finding ways to include him in normal school life not excluding him. I think i would have a word with the head teacher and tell her its not good enough, even if he comes out for one song if he cant manage the full play.

I would be furious! My son has difficulties also and if his pre school excluded him from something because of it I would definately be having words! Huge x

I would be upset, too! Nolan has sensory issues so would probably find it difficult to stand still or understand what was going on but I would still expect him to be given a chance.

I would be livid! I would hate to see any teacher say that Alex couldn't do something!

This is shocking! So sorry you and your little boy have been treated this way. This is not inclusive at all, and he should in no way be excluded from such an important event. Go in and complain sweety, this is really unfair on you all. xx

I keep thinking about this and it makes me so angry. I could understand not giving him an essential part but she should find something for him!

Thats a bit harsh, hes 2 for goodness sake, no 2 year old sits and behaves wirhout getting distracted doing a navity play no matter if they havw learning difficulties or not.
My 2 year old wouldnt sit and do anything like that, the second he saw me or his dad hed be off.
When we used to do nativitys parts where invented, we must have had about 15 sheep and 12 cows wandering around the background, no one sat still.
Teacher must think shes doing some broadway show or somthing

Definitely complain, that's unacceptable. I would not have it, don't be cross but do explain in a nice manner that you think that there should be something that your LO CAN do. Also, ask if any other children are not being included and ask their parents how they feel about it.

I'd complain to the head. I really would, there is no reason for him to be excluded in this way!
