Mother is embroiled in a row with her nine-year-old son’s school after she claimed he was forced to go without food all day but had to admit it wasn’t true after head teacher wrote her a scathing letter blasting ‘untruths’

  • Stacy Jarvis, 31, pulled her son Jayden, nine, out of Thanet Primary School 
  • Hull mother said they only offered him a tuna sandwich which he rejected 
  • She has now been forced to admit they also offered him a hot shepherd’s pie  

A mother embroiled in a row with her son’s school after claiming they left him with ‘no food all day’ has been forced to admit he was offered a hot and cold meal.

Stacy Jarvis publicly accused staff at Thanet Primary School in East Hull of leaving her nine-year-old Jayden starving with no food for the entire day. 

She claimed kitchen staff only offered him a tuna sandwich, but because he doesn’t like tuna, he was left with nothing. 

But now Miss Jarvis, 31, has been forced to admit he was given the option of a shepherd’s pie, but also rejected that, before he was offered the tuna sandwich. 

The mother-of-four was told by headteacher Mrs Machon in a letter she received on Monday, which blasted her for spreading ‘untruths’.    

Miss Jarvis maintains she was not told this by anyone at the school, and knew nothing about the hot meal Jayden was offered until she received the letter this week.

Stacy Jarvis publicly accused staff at Thanet Primary School in East Hull of leaving her nine-year-old Jayden starving with no food for the entire day.

She claims she then asked Jayden about the Shepherd’s Pie and he confirmed he had in fact been offered one.  

Miss Jarvis said: ‘He said that when he went the dinner lady gave him the shepherd’s pie and he said ‘I don’t like that’ and that’s when they gave him the tuna sandwich and he said ‘I don’t like that.’

‘He said they said ‘It’s either that or nothing’, that’s what he just told me.

‘I really don’t know why the school didn’t say that in the first place. I don’t know why she [the head teacher] hasn’t said anything to me in person.’

Miss Jarvis said she would not have been so upset by the whole situation if she had known her son was offered a hot meal, before being offered a tuna sandwich.

She was so infuriated she pulled her son out of school over the issue, but sent him back a day later after being threatened with a fine for unauthorised absence.

She then spoke to the headteacher on the phone once Jayden had gone back to school last Friday to ask for assurances for the future.

But in her letter, the Mrs Machon accused Miss Jarvis of only speaking to her on the phone to get ‘enough information’ to pass onto the media.

The head wrote in the letter: ‘I went out of my way on Friday, during our telephone conversation, so that we could move forward and out the incident behind us, to ensure the best for Jayden.

‘It has now become apparent that the sole purpose of the conversation was so that you could gain enough information for a follow up newspaper report. Once again completely based on untruths and misquotes.’

Miss Jarvis said she ‘does not know what to do now.’

She said: ‘That was not the case. I wanted to talk to her to resolve it. I’m fuming about that because that wasn’t the fact.’

The letter tells Miss Jarvis her actions have caused a great deal of stress and upset to all the staff at the school.

The headteacher signs off the letter by telling Miss Jarvis she will continue to do her best for ‘all of her children.’

But she warns her she will be banned from the school site if she is ‘rude’ and ‘aggressive’ again.

In a statement school head Mrs Machon said: ‘Thanet school promotes five key values of respect, responsibility, kindness, honesty and friendship. I have written to Miss Jarvis to request she adheres to these values.’
