Hello, my name is Peter and I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
The school will only need agreement from the main carer - i.e. you.
If he wants to stop the trip, he'll have to make an application to court for an order to stop it - and the court is just not going to give him that order as it is clearly in your son's interests for him to go on the trip. He cannot put up a good reason for this refusal, I assume?
I hope this helps? Can I clarify anything?
Is there a court order in place for his contact?
And confirm for me how old your son is please - and what his views on contact are?
If you are being messed around continually and your son is being upset by the unreliableness of this all - then stop contact and advise that he will have to apply to court. But if your son does enjoy the time he spends with his dad - don't stop contact, but set clear times and boundaries and advise if these are not stuck to that he will have to apply to court.
I hoep this helps?
Happy to help. Best wishes.
