Should the school send material to both parents if asked?

My child lives with his mother 250 miles away. I have him every school holiday, sometimes collecting
him from school.

3 years ago, I sent £5.00 to cover postage (for a while), and a letter asking the headmistress to
ensure that I get copies of reports, newsletters etc as they are distributed to his mother. The
school agreed to do so.

(His Mother and I have a fairly good understanding - but she always forgets to include me
unless I ask).

To date, I have received two items:

1/ An annual holiday list when I first made the request.

2/ A new holiday list,- when I complained to the HM about lack of anything else a full year later!

Please could someone advise me what I need to do to ensure I obtain copies of important information
and reports?

Is my next step the LEA?

Thanks.

If the school have failed to send you info about elections to school board, PTA etc. then they have
broken the law.

Certainly the LEA and also your local councillor would help.

Could they actually do anything?

I'm told that today's schools are virtually autonomous and answerable to no-one. Is this true - who
do you go to if the school doesn't help you?
