    Default Can I gain access to son’s Kindy summary to School

    Does anyone know if I can actually read my son’s Kindy summary sent to his School? He has a shunt in for a brain cyst, sensory issues, has OT and a bit of social interaction issues but seems to be better since he started School. His Kindy and I spoke at lengths about the issues and got him help. I had a meeting with the School before and after he started. The thing is I have left my partner and there was emotional manipulation by mil. The Kindy told me they wrote about the mil in his summary and they brought her up in the School meeting! So just wondering if I can gain access to it in case my ex and ex mil get nasty about how many nights the kids can stay with him. I want to know what was written in there. Thanks

    Our kindy gave us a copy of what they sent to the school. Maybe ask the school and/or kindy if you can have a copy? Given it’s your child and he is in your care, I don’t see why they would refuse.

    Best thing to do would be to ring and ask. They may not let you have a copy but might read it to you. Whatever the case though it would be the same for ex and mil. I.e. if they wont let you see it or have a copy then they wont let mil or ex see it or have a copy either. If it is an internal school document, not intended for others outside of schools to see, even though its about your child they may not let youhave access to it. Same as other instittutions e.g. banks, just because you have an account woth them, doesnt mean you can access the banks internal documents, if that makes sense. We have certain documents at school that are only for employees of the school to access.

    You should absolutely be given a copy of it - I have my children’s. If the kinder or school won’t give it to you, I’d be taking it further, through Freedom of Information channels. Good luck.

    Default Are you sure you really want to do that ?

    If you bring the school in on your marital dispute you will ensure they are very, very careful what they commit to writing in future. This disadvantages your child significantly as it will reduce the long term communication within the school about his/her situation. The value of the Kindy's letter has as evidence is virtually nil, and the cost of recovering it is significant.
