MR JUSTICE HOLMAN:
"If the extradition were to take place quickly…the separation is one that would, under normal circumstances, cause a regression in the child. However, with emotional support and the structure of the school (the current class and teacher) this can be managed; [the child] would recover within a few months."
The reference there to "the current class and teacher" is one which pervades other aspects of the report. The thrust of the report is that, if his father is extradited whilst this child remains at the same school in the same class with the same teacher, then any regressive or damaging effects would be quite limited. So, on internal page 27, Mr Rogers says:
"At this moment in time [the child], due to the school, is emotionally protected by the actions of the teacher and the school. Hence, if the separation were to occur, it needs to occur very quickly, and at least three to four weeks before the school break (mid-July), while the school is able to support the initial separation, and while a structured routine is available to him."
However, Mr Rogers immediately continues, at the top of internal page 28:
"In my view, if separation occurs during the school summer break (from mid-July to early September), when there is no structure or additional support available, the regression could be severe…"
