Having received a large box of documentation as a result of a Subject Access Request, a huge low point for me - and also an eye opener - was an email sent to the Council's Education Team from their contracted senior ed psych. It was clear the Education Team had sent all assessments and reports to said person to review ahead of a Tribunal challenging a Refusal to Assess. The email stated very clearly that the view of this EP was that my child had complex and longstanding needs and that in their view the Team should assess for an EHCP. Instead they obtained a Witness Statement from the School's Senco who had spectacularly let my child down to the point that my child had already been referred to a PRU and could no longer attend said school. The Witness Statement stated the School could meet needs. During this time my child's mental health completely broke down. I didn't have time to focus on the Tribunal and we lost.
