Hi I sent back my daughters dla renewal then I got 190 on 14th.
she's had extra issues such as hypermobility and for refusal so when i called on 15th just to check what the 190 is..... he said they've denied it as they spoke to a teacher at the school who said nothing wrong with my daughter? I mean the child is never at school due to anxiety so I have no idea how they even would get this assumption? 
I haven't yet got a text or anything or a letter. 

Does this sound right?

    Only you know if that sounds right. What anyone in a forum can tell you, that its normal people, and in this case teachers, to lie? Raise a complaint with the school, ask a reference number, raise an MR for your daughter's claim.

    Allowed to tell you what? Refusals do happen. If you disagree then you can request the MR which should be put in writing. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    It's reasonable to expect that the school would provide evaluations based on your daughter's attendance at school on better days when she is fit to attend contributing to the overall assessment process. 

    The DWP has the authority to seek information from various sources, including schools, during the evaluation of disability benefit claims. If you're inquiring whether the DWP can share details about the teacher's assessment of your daughter, I think this would be acceptable as long as they do not disclose the teacher's name, ensuring compliance with GDPR privacy standards.
