Room full of people this time, about 10.

Basically, they are offering home tuition now, 5 hours, tutor available immediately. But ds would have to stay on roll at this school.

CAMHS are saying if i home ed, seen as ds doesnt have anxiety/self harm when not attending school. They dont see what they can offer. They would make referral to medical needs for home tuition, if i want them to, then stay involved.

SW is saying ss will be involved long term, passed to another team (she would tell me which team later) to ensure that all of ds's needs are met.

Meeting was TAC, is that the same as CIN?

Oh sorry missed that bit - yes you are right you have nothing to do with SA unless they are rec residential as 'Mum can't cope"

Oh well you can tell her she won't like what you have to say about her / her report in your case statement if it goes to another tribunal either!

Is she's new then really its the manager you complained to who is also responsible as she must (should) have been under probation / regular supervision.

That's fine, Ms SW, I don't need to like professional reports. As we all know, the needs of the child are paramount, and the feelings of the various adults involved are irrelevant. I presume i can expect your professional report to reflect that?

Just checked on HCPC she wasnt registered until 1/12/12. Im not sure if that is just registered to the borough or to the job or to the Country. So seeing us in September must have literally been her first job

I will wait and see what she writes, apparently she hadnt seen the letter i wrote about inaccuracies in the core assessment to her manager a week ago.

Then why on earth was she allowed to visit your home and terrorise your Ds unaccompanied?

I like all factually correct objective reports written by competent and experienced professionals and I expect no less than that.

bochead just skimming to try and catch up (fat chance you chatterers) and have just hit a post from you saying you can't get SALT etc if you HE. This is not correct in my area anyway. The therapy is attached to the child not the institution. Local NHS SALT told me this when I was trying to decide what to do re HE. As a side benefit that means all SALT etc is 121.

claw2 Fri 11-Jan-13 23:00:07

Star, she is acting as if she is leaving ie transfer of case, new SW and she is flying home for a 'holiday' and wanted to tie things up before she goes hence goodbye visit.

She's a bloody nutter.

You know what though. It explains a lot. I have been wondering where she found the time to harass you in the way she did, always on your case etc. now I suspect it was because she hadn't been properly inducted into her role or built up a case-load and had to demonstrate how she was filling her time.

claw2 Fri 11-Jan-13 23:09:29

Maybe i should ask her for HER background information, ie how long been a SW for, how long in this Borough etc, etc, when she sends her report on me, to me, so i can write it in my parental statement to Tribunal!

mariammama Fri 11-Jan-13 23:12:49

Anything she thought or observed up till 30.11.12 might (presumably) be disregarded, on the basis of her not being a SW till then. I'm imagining a paediatrician's report, or even an educational psychologist's...

Imagine if a final year medical student posed as a proper doctor, came and harassed you for months, talked nonsense in meetings, wrote a load of draft drivel, and then finally signed off their report 6 weeks after scraping through their exams... they really wouldn't be very long in practice before getting struck off. And even the worst NHS trust couldn't try to put any store on what their opinions were.

claw2 Fri 11-Jan-13 23:13:26

And why she was planning a meeting and a return to school for a kid, who she was fully aware was self harming, having suicidal thoughts, subject to a safety plan with an 8 day old medical certificate stating he was not fit for school until he had a CAMHS care plan in place.

mariammama Fri 11-Jan-13 23:16:08

Agnes and inappropriately and other clever bods,
would sending a bogus social worker demonstrate incompetence and near-fraud sufficient to be judicial review type material?

Claw. You've every right to be angry, and you appear to have some dry powder for this, but be careful that you use it wisely and for a defined outcome, not simply to slap her in the face. (Which I've been doing in my mind quite a bit btw)

mariammama Fri 11-Jan-13 23:24:52

Perhaps they should go for a full multiprofessional team. I can source them Dodgy doctors and bogus SW plus a fake nurse and a pretend psychologist

claw2 Fri 11-Jan-13 23:25:45

I will point out to her when i get a copy of what she plans to send a) she does not have my consent b) SS has not provided any services, she now has no involvement c) My solicitor lodged a complaint with her manager about her conduct and how views were obtained d) I have written to her manager about her inaccurate core assessment report.

Before she writes anything, my 2 complaints should be answered.

Claw, tbh I woukd sit on this all until you have seen what she has written.

Better to discredit her nonsense than coach her IMO.

Keep your powder dry. She HAS to write something. Don't trap or confuse her. Read what she has written then point out the things you require changing due to her mistakes.

mariammama Fri 11-Jan-13 23:33:52

Perhaps not bogus after all, possibly just useless biscuit. Unison say that SW register has transferred over to a new organisation. With a block "registration valid" date for two years starting 1.12.2012.

claw2 Fri 11-Jan-13 23:35:28

Star, i have encountered some incompetent professionals, but she takes the biscuit.

Having to sit here with her today, i did want to wipe the manic smile off her face, she talks then out of the blue does this wild smiling thing. Its not about revenge on her, i would have been quiet happy, just to let her close the case and have an inaccurate core assessment report floating about, which i had replied to and left it at that.

I have smiled through gritted teeth, i have nodded, i have gone along with whatever. But now she wants to interfere and be detrimental to the help and support ds could recieve.

claw2 Fri 11-Jan-13 23:40:00

She is going to send me a copy of what she has written. I havent said a word to her, it was a case of being polite to her today, smiling, nodding and getting her out the house as quickly as possible.

Well tbh it sounds like she has been drawn to the job for the power and abuse she is able to wield. She appears to be obsessed with undermining, terrifying and stressing you under the guise that it is all for your own good.

claw2 Fri 11-Jan-13 23:52:18

Maria, i dont think she is bogus, just new to the Borough or maybe even the Country, as she has stated she is new, only just started, ds is one of her first cases etc, etc. Doesnt know the name of teams or 'how the system works with transfers' etc.

claw2 Sat 12-Jan-13 00:01:13

Saying that it will probably emerge she has worked there for 20 years grin and was telling me a load a nonsense to avoid answering my questions!

Anyhow on a positive note, i can pick up copy of referral on Monday.

and we wont see that SW anymore.

Im happy.

zzzzz Sat 12-Jan-13 00:15:20

claw finally managed to get some space to read all this. This is dreadful. I am of course totally useless and have nothing clever to add, but HONK!

bochead Sat 12-Jan-13 00:40:40

zzzz I can obviously only comment for my area but DS ONLY has SALT aged 7 because I specifically won it for him via the Educational Tribunal process, otherwise he'd still be going without. I think I have the misfortune to live in the PCT from hell.
