We won the tribunal !!!!!!

Can't believe it - in shock! This started from when we had a 8.5k a year placement as our first school choice. LA played their stupid games and the offer of a place withdrawn on the final day of submissions so we had 24 hours to find an independent placement which we have won.

So a year of stress which could have been resolved months ago without the need for tribunal - cost to us 3k and heaps of stress.

Cost to LA was originally going to be about 20k if they had gone with our first choice of placement, cost to LA now 70k a year for the placement plus the cost of hiring a solicitor and barrister to take us on - I did it without any legal help but the power of mumsnet.

Would like to say thank you to each and everyone of you for holding my hand through this journey. Just shows that David can beat Goliath.

The journey not over for me as now the complaint process starts but that can wait for another day smile

Great. Wasn't that LA solicitor the one who told you you couldn't possibly get OT in the statement and you couldn't possibly win? Let's hope she's learnt something.
