Bromley Council has been ordered to pay a dad £3,600 after his son with special needs missed out on full-time education and support for several months. The man claimed he had to take time off work as he was distressed about the lack of support for his son.

The unnamed dad, referred to only as Mr X in the Local Government Ombudsman report, said the lack of support had a "significant impact" on his family and his son's anxiety. The probe found the council didn't arrange alternative education for Mr X's son, named S in the report, between June 2021 and February 2022. It also found S didn't receive the full provision outlined in his support plan in the same period.

  Bizarre instruments and sounds in famous songs There are particular sounds that make songs unique, and these sounds are sometimes achieved by using odd instruments and samples. Some music artists did include quite bizarre instruments in their recordings, while others have used common objects as instruments. And then there are also those who sampled the most unique sounds out there and included them in their songs.

The council first knew S wasn't accessing full-time education in June 2021. Mr X and the school had agreed to put S on a temporary part-time timetable the month before as he wasn't managing full days. The school arranged a review of S's plan in June as the part-time timetable wasn't "having the effect on S the school and he hoped for", according to the report. At the review in July 2021, the school and Mr X agreed that S needed to change school.

The ombudsman found the council failed to arrange any alternative education for S until February 2022. S stopped attending the school completely in October 2021. The report also found the council had reason to believe from June 2021 that S wasn't getting all the provision in his plan and the authority breached its duty to secure that support.

  Ryan Reynolds Is Working Out For Deadpool 3, And He's Clearly Not On A Diet Of Chimichangas The star of Deadpool is back at it and getting ready to bring Wade Wilson back to the big screen.Don Saladino, who has helped not only Ryan Reynolds, but Marvel actors like Sebastian Stan, Hugh Jackman and David Harbour, shared on Instagram that he’s working with the Deadpool actor for the upcoming threequel.

The report says: "This meant that S went without suitable full-time education and all the provision in his EHC plan between June 2021 and February 2022. The fact that S missed out on essential support means that an already vulnerable young person was further disadvantaged. The lack of provision had a significant personal impact on both S, and Mr X. It caused them distress and worry, both about when S would get the support he should receive and about where he would attend school."

Mr X also complained that the council failed to find another suitable school for his son following the review of S's plan in July 2021 where the school said it wasn't able to meet S's needs. The council consulted 13 schools between July 2021 and March 2022, but there were two two-month gaps when it didn't consult any schools. The ombudsman found this further delay added to Mr X's "frustration and uncertainty" but couldn't say whether the council would have found a different school for S had it consulted more quickly.

In February 2022, Mr X confirmed the council had agreed to fund 1.5 hours of weekly tuition for S and art therapy. The council must pay Mr X £3,200 for the education and therapy S is likely to have missed between June 2021 and February 2022, £300 to recognise Mr X's "avoidable distress and uncertainty" and £100 for the "avoidable time and trouble" he was caused by having to complain.

The authority must also review its policy so that it quickly secures alternative provision for children who do not have access to full-time education at school. Bromley Council has been contacted for comment.
