  • Kent County Council (19 009 689)

    Statement Not upheld School transport 17-Jun-2020

    Summary: Mr B complains that the Council was wrong to refuse his younger son, D, transport to and from the grammar school that he attends. There was no fault in the way that the Council refused transport for D or Mr B's subsequent appeal.

  • Kent County Council (19 005 803)

    Statement Upheld Special educational needs 27-May-2020

    Summary: The complainant alleges that the Council has failed to provide alternative education to his child whose school attendance was poor. The Council has been at fault because it failed to consider the range of options open to it to ensure the child's attendance. It would be speculative to say what might have happened if the Council had not acted with fault. But there was a lost opportunity to ensure the child's attendance at school. The Council has accepted the remedy for the resulting injustice.

  • Kent County Council (19 019 118)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries School admissions 13-Mar-2020

    Summary: A parent complained that the Council's Head Teacher Assessment Panel did not properly consider his son's suitability for admission to grammar school. But the Ombudsman will not investigate this matter because the parent has a right of appeal to an independent appeal panel about a refusal of a place at a grammar school.

  • Kent County Council (19 017 063)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries School admissions 05-Feb-2020

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate this complaint about the Council's 11+ test review process. This is because the complainant has a right of appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel if his daughter is refused a place at the grammar school that he wants her to attend, and it is reasonable to expect him to use it.

  • Kent County Council (19 015 145)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries School admissions 10-Jan-2020

    Summary: A parent complained that the Council had failed to make sufficient reasonable adjustments in view of her son's special educational needs, when he took the Kent Test for admission to grammar school. However the Ombudsman will not investigate this matter. This is because the injustice due to any fault by the Council is unknown at this stage, and the parent will have a right of appeal to an independent appeal panel about any refusal of a school place.

  • Kent County Council (19 003 784)

    Statement Upheld School admissions 18-Nov-2019

    Summary: Mrs B says the admissions appeal panel failed to properly consider her daughter's appeal or explain its decision. The appeal panel failed to keep notes of its scoring when awarding places at appeal and the decision letter failed to properly explain the appeal panel's decision. That did not affect the decision not to offer Mrs B's daughter a place at the school. An apology, agreement to ensure the appeal panel keeps notes of the reasons for its scoring in future and to ensure decision letters properly explain the appeal panel's reasoning is satisfactory remedy.

  • Kent County Council (19 004 268)

    Statement Not upheld School admissions 11-Oct-2019

    Summary: Mrs X complains the admissions appeals panel did not properly consider her son's appeal for a grammar school place. From the evidence seen, the Ombudsman does not find fault in how the admissions appeals panel considered the appeal.

  • Kent County Council (19 003 186)

    Statement Not upheld School admissions 19-Sep-2019

    Summary: Mrs Y complained the Council's admissions appeal panel failed to properly consider her child's appeal for a place at a local grammar school. The Ombudsman has stopped this investigation, as the Council has now offered a place to Mrs Y's child and no further action by the Ombudsman is needed.
