    • Apologies if this has already been covered elsewhere but I haven't found a direct answer so here's my question.   Both my daughter and my partner have today each received a Letter of Claim from NPS. Both refer to 'incidents' in 2017 - my daughter's in March and my partner's in April. I remember these only vaguely but can't remember what (if any) action we took.   I remember my partner's more clearly because in their PCN where they claimed she'd overstayed (Cross Street, Long Eaton) there was something drastically wrong with their 'evidence'. I can't remember exactly but either their stated times contradicted or -and this is more likely from conversation today - they only provided one photo which was of her car leaving but nothing showing her entering the car park.   I have a feeling my daughter just chose to ignore hers, based on 'urban myth' from friends.   So anyway, today - more than two years on - both suddenly receive these letters from NPS with the usual rhetoric. I want to make sure these are both managed appropriately so I'm not sure what to do next and would appreciate any advice. I'm also particularly interested to read elsewhere on this forum that another case from said car park was rejected by POPLA in May 2017 due to insufficient signage and lack of planning permission for the relevant equipment:     This being the case, the same would have to apply to both our cases since this rejected case occurred just weeks after both of ours.   Not sure how much bearing this may have but I'm hopeful and your advice will be both very welcome and much appreciated.        
    • There will be no issues with a course offer if the dates are as you say. The usual cut off is four months from the date of the offence. This is so as to give the driver the time to accept the offer and take the course before prosecution becomes "timed out" at six months.   However, if the NIPs really were the first to be issued and there are no issues with the address details then both have a cast iron defence to the speeding allegation. The first is dated 20 days after the alleged offence and the second 23 days after the alleged offence. The Road Traffic Offenders' Act makes it quite clear that if a NIP is not served within 14 days of the alleged offence then no prosecution can take place. But as I said, late first NIPs are very rare and both need to check all the details I have mentioned before they decline any out of court offers of a course or Fixed Penalty.    For information, courses are normally offered for speeds up to (Limit +10% + 9mph). Only one course of any type can be taken in three years (with the date of the offences being used to calculate that period) and courses are not offered in Scotland. However, if a driver is not offered a course for any reason when he would normally qualify (including late NIPs) he has no right of appeal to have one offered. If the matter goes to court the court has no power to order a course.
    • My grievance against my manager is on Wednesday at 12.00 noon. A union officer is representing me. The representative for my manager is a product manager. I was told today that she is the Daughter or a Step-Daughter of the manager. Is this a conflict of interest? Am I correct in saying that, because the manager is the subject, the hearing has to be carried out by a person higher than the manager such as a director? if so, the product manager is not entitled to carry out the hearing. I'm pretty certain that I read this in law books. My Brother is a licensed union chairman but has since left his previous employment.  He is certain that I am correct . Any help would be gratefully appreciated.   diecastdave

My daughter goes to a mixed school. The school has decided to have a crackdown on the girls uniform, obviously the boys all wear their uniform perfectly.

 

Yesterday the school sent a man (presumably a male teacher, my daughter did not know him) into the class to check the girls uniforms. He came into the class, told all the girls to stand up, and then checked whether the girls skirts were too short, or trousers too tight.

 

My daughter was really upset, she felt like she had been picked on for being female, all the boys were looking at her to see whether they could see anything, and she is furious that the mere fact that she is female was a reason for making her be checked (her uniform has never been an issue).

 

To make it worse, the school took all the girls that had "failed" to be taught out of normal lessons for the day, and girls as young as 11 were told that their clothing was provocative.

 

Any suggestions where I go from here?

You make sure your daughters uniform meets the school regulations.

It did. It always has. She is autistic and would no more break uniform rules than try to flap her arms and fly. How did that stop her being humiliated by having all the boys stare at her bum? (Yes, she is on the front row. Yes, the boy behind her made comments.)

 

Are you seriously saying that being a girl is enough to be forced to stand up and have all the males stare at your clothes? Luckily the Equalities commission don't agree with your view, and I will be going with their advice - I do not send my daughter to school to be faced with humiliation for merely being female.

Hi,

As a parent of two girls (fully grown now) I can understand some of your arguments.

 

I feel the school went about this in totally the wrong way and embarassed the girls in front of the class. This issue could have been carried out in a more sensitive way, especially with your daughter who could easily have had a melt down.

 

Your post did come across as a bit of a rant but if this is wrong, apologies however, this should be tackled with a calm head.

 

I suggest writing to the school spelling out your displeasure at the way this incident occurred and asking why, when the issue was about the girls uniform, this was carried out by a man. It should have been a woman and not in a classroom setting. As for removing children for something that can be seen as a minor offence is (IMO) wrong. There is also the issue of why boys were not targetted. They will flout rules just as much as girls (although they don't generally wear tight trousers and skirts :madgrin: )

 

Have you read the schools uniform policy? What does it say?

 

I have seen in my (very ) distant past where girls are put under pressure by their peers to wear the same things and also to hitch their skirts up once out of the home (this has been going on since the 60s) Not saying your daughter would do this.

 

In summary, complain to the school and if that falls on deaf ears, your local education department.


If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

It sounds to me as if this has been extremely badly handled. In fact I find it quite scandalous – and I'm sure that most ordinary reasonable parents would do as well.

 

I think that this is one for the local papers. Which area are you in? Also, a letter to your MP.

No I am not and don't put words in my mouth.

I agree with what the school did regarding dress length etc but they certainly went about it the wrong way especially sending a male teacher in to do the checking. I would write in tot eh school by snail mail pointing out the error of their ways but don't write it as a rant.
