A disabled schoolboy was unable to attend lessons for almost three weeks and has transferred schools following a dispute between teachers and his mother.
Eight-year-old Elijah Yates, from Royston, had been off school since January because of the disagreement over the care he receives in school.
Elijah, who attended Royston Summerfields Primary, has Hirschprung's disease, which affects the nerves of the bowel, and has to wear nappies.
Although his condition doesn't affect his ability to learn, for hygiene reasons he requires assistance from an adult when he goes to the toilet.
Due to a lack of funding, the school said they could not provide a designated member of staff whose specific role it was to assist Elijah in those circumstances.
His mum, Kerry, was unhappy with the care Summerfields was providing and, as a result, Elijah was told he could not attend until an agreement could be reached.
But this week, he transferred to another school in Wakefield. Kerry, of Poplar Terrace, said she moved him because she was fed up of waiting for negotiations to be arranged with the school. "At the end of the day I just want him to get an education."
In a statement, Summerfields headteacher Margaret Fretwell said the school had made numerous attempts to secure funding and resources for Elijah without success.
She said care plans had been put in place in collaboration with Kerry to ensure the level of support was 'as good as the school could reasonably be expected to provide.'
"We must emphasise the dignity and well-being of the child has always been at the forefront of the school's efforts to accommodate him over the last five years."
She said recent demands from Kerry could not be accommodated without having a significant impact on the needs of others.
"It was the mother's wishes to move her son to a Wakefield school, which is in Kettlethorpe catchment area, where her three elder children attend."
