A FUMING mum has pulled her son out of primary school – after a row about a tuna sandwich.
Stacy Jarvis, 31, claims little Jayden, nine, “went all day without food” because the hot school dinners had ran out by the time he got to the canteen at Hull’s Thanet Primary School.
The Year 5 pupil missed his meal because he was “taking his time” on the toilet.
Teachers then offered him a tuna sandwich instead – which he refused to eat.
Stacy raged: “They pulled me in when I picked the kids up and said ‘Jayden will come out and tell you he had no lunch because he took his time on the toilet, so the only option left was a tuna sandwich and he doesn’t like it’.
“I said I was a phone call away, and they could have rang me to bring a lunch in so he was at least fed, not going six and a half hours without food.
BOY REFUSED TUNA SNACK
“They said ‘I was too busy to give you a call’, so I said ‘all the staff in this school and no one could give me a call?’ I was fuming.
“He usually gets a hot meal, but he was having a poo and there was nothing left, but they apparently made three Year 6s a cheese sandwich, but Jayden only got offered a tuna sandwich.”
Stacy – also mum to Alisha, seven, and Cole, five – pulled Jayden from the school after a blazing row with the headteacher on Wednesday.
“I said ‘it won’t happen again, I’ve told him, you don’t stay at school without any lunch, you come home’ and she said ‘I don’t think that’s right to tell your child to leave school’ and I said ‘well I don’t think its right to let my child starve.”

“I’m keeping him off until they are willing to speak to me properly and apologise to Jayden for making him upset and hungry.”
A spokesperson for Thanet Primary School said “Thanet Primary School ensures that every pupil at the school is provided with a nutritious meal at lunchtime.
“Parents are always welcome to contact the school to discuss their children’s meal options.”
