A mum says she has been made to feel like a bad parent after pulling her daughter from school over coronavirus worries.

Laura Ogbuehi, 29, has made the decision to keep her daughter Kelsie at home, as cases of coronavirus in Hull soared.

The north Hull mum, who took her daughter out of Parkstone Primary School on October 16, now faces a fine and has been reported to Hull City Council.

The mum is "shocked and disgusted" with the school's policy of not sending work home for pupils whose parents have chosen to temporarily remove their children, reports Hull Live.

"I have chosen to keep my child off school due to ongoing high risk the virus poses," she said. "I am not willing to bring her in because of how high the rates are in Hull and schools.

"I've got a lot of friends keeping their kids off at different schools and they're getting work home daily, that's why I'm so angry.

Ms Ogbuehi said the school have "made her feel like a bad parent"

"Fine me if need be but I would rather have a fine then a dead child."

Ms Ogbuehi said the school have "made her feel like a bad parent" over her decision, which has left her irate.

The school said that its remote learning policy ensures "consistency in approach" and "sets out expectations" for the school community.

"I wont lie to you when I get angry I lose myself and get irate," said the mum, "but when I was first communicating with the school it was all nice, but since then they've made me feel like a really bad parent.

"I was that depressed the other day I was crying and questioning myself, it's really shocking how they can make me feel like a bad parent over trying to keep her safe.

"It's not like I've just taken my daughter off the map where they don't know where she is."

Ms Ogbuehi said she asked the school for work for over a week, but the school has told her its policy "does not allow us to provide work for pupils whose parents are choosing to keep them off school."

In an email to the school, she wrote: "Hello. I’m sorry but I am not willing to send Kelise back until I know what’s going on with this ongoing COVID 19 situation.

"My child’s education is important but her health and safety is my main priority.

"The school refuses to send me work for my daughter which is disgusting as you say you have a duty of care to the children, yet you contradict this as you will not allow her work to be sent home.

"I am deeply angered with the school and its policy. A duty of care is to look out for and protect a child, yet your willing to risk their health/lives by making me have no choice but to send her to school if I wish her to receive work.

"My apologies to you, but she is not coming in school until I know more."

An e-mail response from the school, which has been seen by Hull Live, the school says: "Thank you for your e-mail requesting work for Kelise, unfortunately our school policy does not allow us to provide work for pupils who's parents are choosing to keep them off school.

"If you wish to home educate Kelise then you need to send us an email stating that this is what you are planning to do."

Ms Ogbuehi replied and told the school she thinks their policy is "absolutely shocking and disgusting" and has not sent her daughter back.

A spokesperson for the school said: “The school provides home learning for pupils who are self-isolating or those shielding due to Covid.

"Home learning is provided either via Google Classrooms or, if the parent requests, a printed pack of work is posted to the home address.

"Where parents have raised concerns with the school about the risks associated with Covid, we have discussed this on an individual basis.

"Our remote learning policy aims to ensure a consistency in approach to home learning for pupils who are not in school, and sets out expectations for all members of the school community with regards to home learning.”
