A dad in dispute with Spalding Grammar School over its refusal to allow his son to attend a term-time Sea Cadets course has been offered a meeting by the chairman of governors.

Mick Flindall (55), from Sutton Bridge, has made an official complaint over the head teacher’s refusal “to grant me a personal interview and to respond to several telephone calls”.

He said: “The outcome I want is a written apology and I still want a meeting with the head.

“I will take it as far as it needs to go once I have exhausted the school’s complaints procedure.”

The dad last week emailed a petition to the school after 174 people supported his case for son Alfie (14) to attend a course linked to his future career in the Royal Navy.

Alfie’s course started – without him – today (Monday).

Mr Flindall has also applied to become a parent governor at the school.
