I understand from the material to which you have referred that unless I provide you information about my son's schooling,  you can proceed down a paper trail of warnings, orders and even prosecution should you wish to waste Bexley's time and money instead of building enough grammar school places to accommodate grade A pupils and money to improve the cattle market alternatives on offer.

My son got 0.4% under the randomly set pass threshold and though a grade A student, instead of being offered a school gaining 100% GSCE grades, you offered him one gaining 37% instead.

My responsibility is, I understand, to inform you that my son attends school. I think it is apparent that our outrage at Bexley's abuse of my son would indicate that we take education seriously and in not wanting him to be further abused at Welling school would have made alternative provision within the law, which we have done.

I will be willing to meet your representatives at Magistrates Court in due course should you so wish, but it would be rather a waste of everyone's time, as when the court discovers my son attends school, I believe no offence will have been committed, unless you can advise me otherwise. It would on the other hand provide me with the opportunity to speak against Bexley's child abuse and advertise how its educational system is failing so many Bexley children.

I hope your department understands that some parents won't take quietly the distress your policy causes their children and I hope further that serious consideration is being given to local educational reform.
