The council confirmed yesterday that the five-year-old - who is alleged to have tried to starve herself after being bullied at Whitland primary school - did not qualify for home tuition.
The girl has been kept away from the school following an alleged bullying incident. He solicitor, Michael Charles, who has been pressing the authority to find alternative education for the child, called the move 'outrageous'. He is to launch a challenge to the decisin in the high court, which could be heard as early as next week.
This follows the news last week that a group of parents at the school accused the authority of negligence. The parents of three children are planning to take legal action after alleging that it failed to prevent bullying at the school. But other parents and the school itself strongly deny that there is a problem.
The mother of the five-year-old said earlier this week that she had been driven to take legal action because her repeated complaints to the school about the bullying of her daughter had been ignored.
Governors of the school have organised a meeting for parents which will take place in the school tonight.
