Special Educational Needs

Our Education Team are leading experts in special educational needs (SEN) and disability law. Every child or young person with special educational needs and/or disabilities is entitled to an education that ensures they can achieve the best possible outcome in their learning, future career and life. With an education, health and care plan, a local authority must provide a child or young person with all the support necessary to meet their learning needs.

Unfortunately, many children or young people go without education, health and care plans or are provided with plans that do not provide the provision they desperately need. This should not go unchallenged; it puts their education and future quality of life at substantial and needless risk.

There are many ways of helping parents get the right support, including when necessary, appealing to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal. Our education law team has a proven track record of success and have helped thousands of parents ensure their children get the support they need.

Services we provide:

  • Advice on whether a child or young person may have special educational needs and/or disabilities
  • Advice on whether the provision in a school is meeting a child or young person’s needs
  • Advice on whether a child or young person requires an Education, Health and Care Needs Assessment
  • Advising and conducting appeals to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal over a decision not to conduct an education, health and care assessment
  • Advising and conducting appeals to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal over a decision not to issue an education health and care plan, or over the contents of that plan once issued
  • Advising and conducting appeals against a decision to cease to maintain an education, health and care plan
