SEND Legal Advice


"Every child has a fundamental right to education, and must be given the opportunity to achieve and maintain an acceptable level of learning. Every child has unique characteristics, interests, abilities and learning needs, Education systems should be designed and educational programmes implemented to take into account the wide diversity of these characteristics and needs."
(The Salamanca Statement and Framework for Action on Special Needs Education, UNESCO 1994)

SEND is an area of education which is highly regulated. Schools, Colleges and parents often find themselves bogged down in legal frameworks and bureaucracy which can be complicated, time-consuming and expensive. SEND funding is often stretched and accessing additional support appropriate to the needs of the child is often described as a 'fight'.

We are able to offer independent advice related to Statutory processes, such as: accessing appropriate provision and support, disability discrimination, exclusion of children and young people with SEND, applications for EHCP, Admissions, JCQ Regulations and support for SEND and Disability Discrimination Tribunals and Judicial Reviews.
