Have you complained to the Council please?
The LA would generally be liable for any decisions. You can't force the school do do something but you can make it hard for them
1) Write formally and complain to the Local Authority
Address the complaint to the Chief Officer.
That department will investigate the matter for you
If you are still unhappy you can complain to the Ombudsman
2) They are independent of the school and also offer a free servicxe
Their website is www.lgo.org.uk
3) If that does not work you can consider a Judicial Review
But this can be costly. This is where a senior Judge of the High Court considers whether the school has acted reasonably and legally.
The Judge can agree with the decision or remit it back for further consideration.
But take steps 1) and 2) first.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
