Child denied place at Baverstock grant-maintained school

A child was denied a place at Baverstock grant-maintained school in Birmingham because she did not attend the school's open evening, says a second report from the ombudsman. The school's admissions appeal committee decided not to grant the child a place because she had not shown enough commitment to Baverstock, applying late and not attending the school open evening.
