Just got back from meeting with my solicitor to discuss pending Tribunal for SA.

AND LA HAVE BACKED DOWN AND AGREED!!!

Apparently LA were not happy with my EP report and wanted to correct inaccuries at a later date, but still.........

I can now take ds off role and HE until a plan is made to return him to education.

I am so happy, i even kissed the solicitor grin

So happy for you claw, I also read all you're posts with despair for you little one. Well done, your strength, courage and humour are inspiring. Hope to hear about one happy, relaxed 8 year old from here on!!

Happy New Year smile

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Thu 03-Jan-13 15:51:38

Oh wow - that's amazing. Simply ridiculous that you've had to go through all of that, but incredible it went the right way grin

winewinewine

I'm very grin for you!

Great news Claw - glad to see that common sense has prevailed!
You helped me out a lot a couple of years ago and your advice (and others here) enabled me to get my ds a SA, then a statement and now it looks like we've got an independent school place for him. I managed all this without tribunal and get so angry seeing what you, and lots of others, have to go through to get what your dc's need -it's a postcode lottery which is just so wrong.
I hope you and ds can take a little bit of time out now to enjoy yourselves and be stress free - at least until the next challenge comes along.
To everyone else - carry on fighting!

WoWWWW!!!!!!!!!! Pouring a virtual fizzy wine!

(Actually, trying not to tip DS2's water bottle over my keyboard as I fish it out of the back of the sofa again, but you get the picture grin)

DisAstrophe Thu 03-Jan-13 20:46:00

steelev48 Thu 03-Jan-13 21:02:46

That is fantastic news! Well done. I'm really pleased for you.

beautifulgirls Thu 03-Jan-13 21:21:35

Brilliant news Claw. First hurdle over, and I hope the rest are mere molehills only now.

AgnesDiPesto Thu 03-Jan-13 23:09:35

Fantastic news. Well done you.

Get it in writing though!

So annoyed they could not have done this before Xmas and given you a proper break.

coff33andmintspies Thu 03-Jan-13 23:18:56

YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!! BRILLIANT! <dances in a circle shaking tail feathers>

honk honk honk! I am so pleased for you and your DS this has made my day x

santaclaw1 Thu 03-Jan-13 23:24:02

Thanks everyone smile

Agnes i have in writing already!!

Following review of further evidence we agree to carry out SA.

They added they have concerns about EP report as it appears to be based solely on info from me and an interview with ds in his mothers presence, this has resulted in significant inaccuracies and they will comment once relevant personnel have been consulted.

They have no intention of making this easy.

Claw smile.

I don't know what to say. I've been DYING to say for so long that I can't see how it can possibly go to tribunal but things have been so surreal with prevailing madness that none but people here would believe, I just didn't dare.

I saw your post earlier and shed a tear of happiness but wanted to catch up with you and your threads with a drink. So, here's to you, - and to us all. wine

santaclaw1 Fri 04-Jan-13 00:05:51

Thank you Star, here is to us all, as i said without you guys to keep me sane, give me sympathy, support, advice and a kick up the arse when needed i wouldnt have got this far grin

and on that note i am off to bed to hopefully get some sleep for a change

Handywoman Fri 04-Jan-13 08:23:16

ArthurPewty Fri 04-Jan-13 08:40:22

Brilliant news claw - brings a huge New Year boost to all of us fighting alongside you for our DCs. The struggle is what makes us bolshie, intense pia not mbp (I'm referring to myself not you grin) or to be more accurate, the struggle brings out certain 'traits' iykwim.

tryingtokeepintune Fri 04-Jan-13 14:04:07

I am SOOOOO happy for you.

Wow!

Congratulations.

TheTimeTravellersWife Fri 04-Jan-13 15:23:55
