Just a rant about how awful these Hertfordshire people really are. Had our Tribunal yesterday, our advocate bumped into their team on the court steps and asked if they had any late evidence, to which they answered no. Five minutes before it starts, they submit two pieces of new evidence which could have been submitted weeks before. It was full of falsehoods and the judge allowed it. On the other hand when I mentioned that 3 ASD children (that's most of the children with autism) had left the school last term because new HT had removed support, I was shut up and told it was not relevant. I thought it was pretty relevant given the LAs case rested on evidence from HT that she was going to provide all necessary support. It was farcical, no idea what the outcome will be, even though they submitted virtually no evidence.
Thanks all. The judges didn't appear that bad, it just seemed so routine that this sort of thing was done. The worst thing was that all the work we have done over the last year to give ds academic skills was claimed by the school as their progress and evidence for no further support required. By school I mean a demonic anti sen new HT desperate to please the LA.
