If your child already has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) when they are starting primary school, your Local Authority’s Special Educational Needs department will allocate their place. You’ll have the opportunity to provide your views on which school you would like your child to attend. For further information on the provision available at local schools in your area, you can visit the Local Authority’s Local Officer.
If you aren’t happy with the school named in Section I of your child’s EHCP, once the final plan is issued, you will be provided with a right of appeal to the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Tribunal.
For legal advice and help to prepare your appeal, get in touch with our Education Solicitors and SEN Lawyers, so we can set out the options available to you for legal assistance with the appeal process.
