Whether they claim to take responsibility or not is irelevent, it is their responsibility as the contractors are in their direct employment. Sue them into the floor. Even the suggestion of legal action would probably make them back down as they know they are on a hiding to nothing and are just hoping you will drop the matter as they cannot win any court case.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Thanks for all your support,I appreciate it very much even if I don't always get round to answering within the week ...(month...)

I have found a new school for Brianna and my eldest is transferring to the same school for his A-levels (because he has finished his exams and he has done exeedingly well...a B in Maths,if you please!And another in English...And an A in Arts!I'm sooo proud!) so not only will she have a new chance she will also have a big brother along she can go to if it all gets too scary,although he isn't right in her part of the building but I guess they will find their way around.I know I'd get lost after five minutes,its huge and has stairs all over the place.

I did have reservations about this school at first,because it is a very big school,that combines several educational lines under one roof,the building itself is sprawling and ugly.The pupils are from all cultures and levels,which makes it very loud and colourful.But they have won me over completely and,I'm happy to say,Brianna and my eldest too. The school is aware of the potential problems of such a big,multicultural institution and they have more teachers than other schools and smaller classes,with two teachers per class. They have permanent school counsellors with office times for advice and counselling for all pupils and also work with the class teachers if problems arise. They have additional work groups on all sorts of themes in the afternoons for free,from taek-won-do and tennis to musical and art lessons down to Lego or computer techs. They have classes for social competence in all levels and offer tutorials for pupils. I'm completely happy and I hope Brianna can be transferred there soon,but it's looking good
Of course,for her it's a huge step and she's not too happy about the fact that she has to leave because people have been nasty to her.But she likes the new school and also the fact that she'll be able to ride her (birthday)bike to school,making her feel independant.She's also looking forward to the afternoon activities and if she takes part in all of those she likes,she'll barely be home to sleep,bless her.
It´s still magic even if you know how it´s done.

Sounds promising, Broc. Let's hope things work out better in this new school. :)

Sounds like a great opportunity for a fresh start! We went through something very similar when Ava was still little, very ill and hard to deal with behaviorally. We tried an alternative school instead of our public school. It was a nightmare. Pulling her out was the best thing we could have done! Our local schools have been wonderful!

Glad to hear your eldest and Brianna are enthused about their fresh start - the new school sounds brilliant Broc. :D

I feel like the worst mom ever! I forgot to be the Tooth Fairy last night. :( I felt so awful when Thing 2 walked down with her little tooth still in the box. She's handling it really well though. We've been brainstorming about what might have gone wrong. I'm going to try to come up with a good story to write in a little letter from the Tooth Fairy and a little something extra to give her. Any ideas on the story front would be most welcome! What could keep the Tooth Fairy from showing up (aside from being kidnapped by an insane assassin)?
