As a solicitors practice we deal with a range of legal matters affecting younger individuals attending school and colleges. We specialise in providing Education based legal advice via our network of 24 offices and our team are highly experienced in all aspects of Education law.
Courtesy of the strengths of our IT system, and modern processes, the location of your school, college, or university is not a limiting factor in our ability to assist you. You are welcome to attend our offices but our assistance is not specific to your location and our initial conversations and meetings can be carried out by phone, and mechanisms such as Skype and Zoom.
Our schools team can provide education support with matters such as;
- Appealing a child’s exclusion from school
- Arranging alternative placements
- Challenging the decisions of schools and local authorities
- Disputing SEN or EHC plans
- Disputing funding decisions
- Disability discrimination claims
- Gaining admission to school’s after being denied a place
If you are unsure as to whether your child has special educational needs and is receiving the appropriate support, then you should seek legal advice. Our specialist schools solicitors have significant experience in the provision of special educational needs and are able to assist our clients throughout England and Wales.
Additionally we can also provide assistance to schools and those within education who require assistance defending claims, are facing regulatory investigations, or otherwise facing legal action.
In the first instance please call our legal team on 0333 202 7175 and we will discussion your specific situation and the options available to you.
