Thanks again, this is all beginning to make sense to me. But I need a bit more help please.
1) are all you said under children's act and is over and above the independent schools regulations? The act should, should it not? and is their a specific section of the act that should be referenced in any reply? They did this with the regulation so I am thinking that we have to be able to reference what should be considered in the Act for my son. Do you have any relevant case(s) that can be cited by my son to support his request?
2) Are you saying that the school could just ignore him or politely send him a courtesy letter pointing out to him these facts as their basis for their reply? I was previously informed that they sent him a holding letter pending advice on the schools legal position. I also know that he bluffs a lot and he takes advantage of diligent people and abuse the law and getting away with it - no sense of responsibility regarding harm he causes. He is not really interested in his son's report other than to use it against him.
3) I also checked the adviser to the school, he specializes in local government schools rather than the independent school sector. I believe his advise to the school could unintentionally mislead and lead to school supplying the report and cause situation that will seriously affect my son outside of the school. He has already encountered sad harassments from his father's family demanding for his GCSE results and threats to get it from his school.
4) The school has been great supporting him but I am not too sure they are fully aware of the extent of consequence and extent of the severity of these consequences for my son could suffer. I spend a lot of money already for him to continue to see a counselor who also helps him from time to time previously and through his hospital consultant too. He already told me he would leave school if they listen to his dad's demands and ask if I would be ready to relocate him to America where he believes his dad would not be able to reach him and spoil his chances. He also talks about education being something that does not matter anymore as a lot of people to his view still make something of themselves without education. All these from a very bright boy who till now wants to go to a top university to pursue his dream course and really do well. He said his dad could only hurt him through school now if they give him information he could use against him. He does not have peace in himself and worry, telling me he finds it increasingly difficult to ignore this in his life now and constantly unhappy now.
Should a solicitor write on his behave to school so he is taken serious? I believe that the advice indicates that even with the child's strong objection the school may have to fulfill their duty. The specialist report suggests risk assessment basis by the school is an expected way forward for complex situation/case and decision should be case by case basis. seems a lot behind simple statements and I don't think I know how we could help articulate these.
Please advise who can best put all these together for the school to help them - My son with your help, which I would prefer if you could advise with the wordings, or a solicitor acting on his behalf?
