It has been a great start to the academic year for our Education Lawyers and we are proud to share that we have had numerous successes for the children and parents we have advised and represented in front of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Tribunal in September and October.

Appeals have ranged from local authorities refusing to complete Education, Health and Care Needs Assessments, or refusing to issue an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), right though to getting places at a wide variety of placements.

Not only are we happy to share that families have succeeded after taking on full appeal Hearings, but a large number of local authorities have conceded appeals at an earlier stage.

More importantly than anything, our successes have meant that those who desperately need more support in school or college will get it, and those who need a particular placement will attend the place that can give them this support.

How Simpson Millar Can Help You

We have helped families secure places in all types of education, including:

  • Mainstream schools
  • Grammar schools
  • Independent schools
  • Residential specialist colleges where students can learn to be as independent as possible whilst completing vocational courses, or before moving on to higher education

Our specialist Education Lawyers understand that every child or young person has their own individual needs. And we will work tirelessly with families to get you the best outcomes possible.

Our expert team know the evidence needed to build up a strong case, and have the skills to negotiate and advocate for families so that we can win your appeals, or even better, settle it before the Tribunal Hearing, where possible.
