Lack of communication with parents, absence of impartiality and a

My comment: How strange because these are exactly the same problems faced by complainant when they submit a complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman.
The LGO offices have an absence of impartiality (they believe the word of a council officer even when overwhelming evidence to the contrary is available. Well they would do because most of them are ex local authority.) and nobody makes more mistakes and unjust ruling than the Local Government Ombudsman, well they would do because most of them are ex local authority. What a joke the LGO have become,
