    Statement Upheld Special educational needs 26-Apr-2019

    Summary: Mr X and Mrs X complain of failures by the Council in accommodating their grandson, Z. They say this caused their family time and trouble, distress and significant financial costs to secure the right provision. The Council took a week too long to move Z to a new placement. But there was no fault in the Council's actions in those other matters that are within the Ombudsman's jurisdiction, with most of the matters complained of being outside our jurisdiction. The Council will apologise for the delay of one week.
