Baker Small has been in the news for the past week after its director, Mark Small, apologised for his firm sending a series of tweets gloating at a tribunal victory over a family trying to get special educational needs (SEN) support for their autistic child.

One of the tweets said: “Crikey, had a great ‘win’ last week which sent some parents into a storm! It is always a great win when the other side thinks they won!” Another said: “Whenever someone thinks they have won and they have conceded 90% of their case, it does make me smile.” Responding to widespread online condemnation of the tone, the Baker Small Twitter account later posted a picture of a kitten laughing.
