    Hi. I work in a primary and feel your pain as I am getting this a lot at the moment especially for children with SEMH. I send back the consultation saying that we can’t meet needs and detail why. You could also try sending them an amended version of the plan showing what you can actually do to best support the child. Then, for example, you could choose which lessons they stay in and which they come out of as the intervention is more useful than staying in the lesson. All depends on the academic levels of the child though balanced against their SEMH needs. If you con get parents to also reject the consultation from their view point that will give it greater weight. Also the parents have the chance of the tribunal route to reject the plan. I find that once this process is started the LA suddenly become more accommodating or at least start talking to us!
    Good luck
