Mother Sues over Daughter's Suicide Attempt in Kent School Isolation Room

Please see Important Update Below

The Guardian Newspaper has today (03/04/19) published a news item about a girl with mental health problems who was placed in an Isolation Room, on a repeated basis when she ‘failed’ to comply, reaching the stage where she developed depression and attempted suicide.

Prior to the intervention of lawyers in mid-March, she had spent every day since mid-January in isolation, meaning she had to remain silent throughout the day and had no directed teaching.

 Although the school is not identified by name it is described as a school in Kent.

I am delighted that someone has at long last taken legal action to try and stop such practices for I have written about them regularly, describing such punishment as 'child abuse'. 

 I am happy to confirm that my concerns about a particular academy, which led me to consider it as a possible candidate for the school in question, do not follow through and I am happy to confirm it is not the school described above. This follows a courteous request from the Academy Trust in question.
