Hi, next school year my daughter is going into a class where she is not happy and does not want to be in. She has just done a year in a different class to her friends (all but 1) and now they want her to do the same. We have expressed our concerns to the headteacher who has replied that she will not move her. These classes we were told were made on friendships, but my daughter is again not with her friends (again all but 1) they are saying they are teaching her independence but for some reason not teaching anyone else! I now will have to go to the governor's but I want to know if they are breaching any human rights? I have done some research and found article 2, protocol 1, right to education, that she had a right to an effective education and article 14, no discrimination, in particular when someone in a public authority treats a person less favourably than others in similar situations on the basis of a particular characteristic. I say these as I worry the my daughter (who in the schools own words is a high achiever) will lose her enthusiasm for learning and want to go to school and that because she is a strong character she can handle this change. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Camille XXX
