An eight-year-old girl has been home-tutored for 20 months because of a lack of disabled toilets in schools. Imogen Ashwell-Lewis has cerebral palsy and has not been able to find a school with suitable facilities since leaving Rogiet Primary in June 2018. 

Monmouthshire council said it was following Welsh Government guidance. A disability charity said many parents of disabled children felt their youngsters were "a bit of an afterthought". 

Imogen's mum Catherine Ashwell-Rice, from Caldicot in Monmouthshire, said her daughter left Rogiet Primary after she raised a series of concerns. 

These resulted in her bringing a disability discriminatory appeal at a special educational needs tribunal for Wales.
