Every child deserves the best education and the chance to fulfil their potential. We have a highly trained and experienced team which can advise and represent you and your child in education matters. We are experienced in bringing judicial review challenges in the High Court against failures by local authorities to properly assess children with special educational needs.
Where local authorities make decisions about the education of a child there may be a right on appeal to an independent tribunal. We can advise you about your rights of appeal and we can provide full representation at the SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Tribunal. If your child has special educational needs (SEN), you can appeal if the council refuses to carry out an Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessment or refuses of offer a plan after an assessment. You can also appeal if the council refuses to carry on with the plan or, in some circumstances, refuse to amend the plan following a reassessment. You might also be able to challenge the contents of your child’s EHC plan.
We can help you get extra support at school for your child if they need it. We can provide advice about home tuition and school transport. We can make sure that your child is provided with a place at the right school. We can advise and represent you and your child in all school exclusions and admissions appeals. We can act in matters involving school closures. If you think you might need help with your child’s education get in touch.
