A father of a child with a life threatening condition is battling with a faith school because he believes it unfairly denied his daughter a place.
Kamaljit Monjal, 38, of Camden Avenue, Hayes, is the father of 11-year-old Jasneet who has a protein allergy called anaphylaxis.
When she has a reaction it causes severe respiratory problems, swelling of the mouth and throat and can lead to unconsciousness.
Mr Monjal says the family applied to Guru Nanak Secondary School in Springfield Road, Hayes, because it is the closest school to them making it easier for a parent to attend Jasneet if she has a reaction.
He has already taken the case to appeal with the school but was turned down on June 6 and is now taking it up with the ombudsman.
Mr Monjal said: "In the last year we have had to pick up Jasneet four times from school because she had an attack.
"We live a quarter of a mile from the school and I just can't understand why no consideration has been given to her condition. And yet there are a lot of children going to the school who aren't even from the borough.
"The school has told me my daughter didn't get in because we didn't fill in the questionnaire and then later said the questionnaire would have no bearing anyway.
"The ombudsman has told me that their selection process was flawed because admission shouldn't be based on a religious questionnaire."
Headteacher Rajinder Sandhu said: "We are hitting a 100 per cent A to Cs in our GCSE results, so of course there are lots of parents who want their children to go to the school. But we only have 120 places and with 400 people applying we inevitably have to turn people away.
"We can't just accept them because they live close to the school. As a faith school we have criteria which applicants have to meet.
"We are doing everything we can to accommodate more people and we have just been given funding to increase our places from 120 to 180."
