Wickenden Mountain Centre
Student name/school: Date:
Darren Hogben, Gt Elms Saturday
What went before:
Darren & other students decoached. Darren’s bag was acting suspiciously.
Darren was requested to open his bag. It transpired that he was smuggling his dog into the centre.
Darren sent to exercise the dog before sending Darren home with him.
Mr Kipling attempted to ring Darren’s mother whom it transpired was out of the country. A ‘text message’ was left on her mobile phone. Next of Kin, Darren’s grandmother, Mrs Hogben, did not answer her phone. Mr Turnstone felt that to send Darren home unaccompanied and across London could be deemed irresponsible if there was no-one expecting him. Mrs Hogben Snr was not expecting Darren and was unable to accommodate him. As Darren’s form tutor in loco parentis he could not agree to such a course of action. Darren had to stay the first night at least as no contact had been made with Mrs Hogben Snr before the last possible train had departed Abergavenny.
Unable to contact Mrs Hogben Snr.
