HCB SEN Solicitors

School Discrimination Solicitors

As specialist education law solicitors we are able to assist with all matters relating to disputes and discrimination at school. Courtesy of our being specialists in education law we are able to provide an unsurpassed level of experience and expertise that would not ordinarily be available from a traditional law firm. Education law is a niche area that requires a practical approach to resolving issues and that is especially the case in matters of school discrimination.

Using the same approach as those following a discrimination claim through court, an appeal must be made within 6 months of the offending act. Both SENDIST and SENTW are sovereign and will evaluate the submitted evidence of the case, which will lead to a formal hearing if a matter arises that violates the Equality Act. Parents can challenge the school through an independent tribunal via the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal (SENDIST).

If you believe your child has been the victim of discrimination, because of their disability, you can seek professional advice from one of our specialist solicitors in order to find out if you have grounds to make a complaint. We have a reputation for excellence nationwide, and we uphold a track record of success for both parents and children who have suffered from disability discrimination.

With offices throughout England and Wales our parent company, the HCB Group, are able to provide support both in person or remotely via phone post and email. In precis we are able to assist with;

  • School Admissions and Exclusions
  • Special Educational Needs (SEN)
  • Discrimination claims
  • Judicial reviews
  • Legal Disputes with Schools, Universities, and Local Authorities

Our school dispute solicitors are able to support both students and parents with guidance on matters such as Special Education Needs (SEN), Academic misconduct, Plagiarism, Disciplinary issues, Discrimination claims and Negligence matters.

With a dedicated team of education professionals we have an in-depth knowledge of this area of law. What’s more we understand your concerns and recognise that sometimes having a person to speak to is as important as discussing SEN legalities and that a person who will listen and offer their experience can be an important ally in resolving issues.

In order to discuss a school discrimination matter with our solicitors please contact the team on 0333 202 7175 or email and we will both provide our initial advice as well as outline a future course of action.
