In schools for example both parents have to be treated equally and this is not altered by divorce/separation etc. For example if one parent is sent a hard copy school report a separated parent must be sent a copy also at the same time. I cant remember whether this is law or a government department ruling but schools have to comply. It is not appropriate to send it only to the parent who may have legal care and control or even a residence order and expect them to show it to the other, unless both parents agree to that.Alan Burke wrote:If all parents were treated equally then that is fine, but I was only responding to Adam Hunt's comment who said he was at the event and that the men and boys were not allowed in the room - but never said anything about other women and girls being told to leave.
Alanâ€™s point relates to care on the day, not specifically to separated parents. but to which parent is accompanying the player. It is usually sensible to follow related official or legal guidelines even though these may not apply to private analysis sessions as parents may expect a similar arrangement. Adam H is just supporting big sis but perhaps he could check the legal points.
On the other hand I can see Harriotâ€™s point
Seems the best option is to boot out all or none.adam_hunt wrote: The reason for 'booting' the men and boys out of the coaching room was because Harriet felt that it was discouraging the girls from participating in the coaching.
You're in danger of becoming like D Sedgwick, trying to pre-empt and prevent replies; this can result in the ECF not following the best course of action.Christopher Kreuzer wrote:Everyone else, there isn't really a need to reply to what Alan said.
