Mum Who Claimed Son Went Without Food At School Now Says Story Wasn’t True
Stacy Jarvis, the mum who pulled her son out of school over a dispute about him missing lunch, has now admitted some key details of the story had been omitted.
Jarvis had claimed her son, Jayden Hunter, had to endure an entire day without food at Longhill Primary School in Hull, because staff had started packing away the lunch service by the time he had finished 'having a poo'.
With his mum claiming no hot meals had been on offer, Young Jayden was apparently offered a tuna sandwich, but he told dinner staff he doesn't like them.
Jarvis then removed her son from the school, saying she would only allow him to return once she had received an apology.
However, after the school's headteacher, Jo Machon, accused Jarvis of 'untruths and misquotes', the disgruntled mum has now said that Jayden wasn't denied a hot meal after all.
Originally, Jarvis told press that she was 'fuming' after what she was told had happened to her son.
But in a letter shared with Hull Live, Jarvis said Jayden has since confessed to also being offered a shepherd's pie.
She 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."
Jarvis claims she only discovered the real truth behind the incident after the headteacher's letter on Monday.
However, she said she is still unhappy with the way school staff handled the situation.
Jarvis added: "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."
Headteacher Machon had previously accused Stacy of telling a story 'based on untruths', writing in a 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."
