Have been looking at the 2012 Specified Work Regulations again (as the original q you raised was about TAs). They talk about the conditions that must be fulfilled for education 'in a [maintained] school'. I am not sure they would apply to out-of-school situations, but they might: your barrister will be much better placed to give a view. I think the body of law on SEN as applies to Local Authorities will be your trump card: at the end of the day, it's this that seems to be being contravened. The school sound really good and co-operative.
Thanks. They do just apply in school but you could argue that if the law thinks TAs in school, where they can be far more easily supervised and directed, should not be teaching save for when specific criteria are met, how can TAs out of school become 'suitable' educators? Especially when the criteria required in school are not even met.
If you want home education (s319 ea act 1996) then you are entitled to request it at tribunal. Your lea will not offer it to you, but if all experts agree that your child needs it then I don't see any problem.
Are you in a position to appeal to the ftt? If so appeal and send in all the documents supporting your case. It's all about needs... If your case merits home education I think you could make that case without much difficulty.
My daughter is partly home educated and her aba tutors all have post graduate degrees as that is what was agreed.
