  • Cornwall Council (19 008 091)

    Report Upheld Alternative provision 21-Jan-2021

    Summary: Mr F's son, B, suffers from anxiety. Mr F complained the Council did not provide education for B when he was unable to attend school due to illness. B missed education because of a flaw in the service designed by the Council to fulfil its duties to children unable to attend school. The Council "outsourced" its responsibilities to schools and did not retain sufficient oversight and control. This meant the Council was either unaware or not in a position to act when things went wrong. The Council relied on B's school to make decisions about B's education. When attempts to secure B's return to school failed, the Council should have arranged suitable education for him. The service designed by the Council failed. B was without education for four months as a result.

  • Somerset County Council (18 010 275)

    Report Upheld Special educational needs 08-Jan-2021

    Summary: Ms X complains of failures by the Council to meet her son, Mr Z's special educational and care needs, causing significant distress to her family. While there was no fault in the SEN matter, the Council failed to properly consider the safeguarding risks to Mr Z's younger siblings repeatedly raised by Ms X. This went on for almost three years, causing her distress and leading to the younger siblings suffering repeated unprovoked violent assaults by Mr Z, who was much larger than them, as well as fear of further attacks.
