Two Examples of our SEN work:

Child F was not thriving at her named secondary school; the school was not delivering the education that Child F's Statement of SEN required. Not wishing to waste any more irreplaceable school terms, Mum moved her child to another independent school. The local authority had not recently re-assessed F's Special Needs, so we demanded a fresh assessment under section 328 (etc) of the Education Act 1996. The Local Authority refused to re-assess and did not want to 'name' the new school, so we had to appeal to the First-tier Tribunal.

Child G moved house from one local authority's area into another local authority's area. G's parents were prefectly happy with her old Statement, but they needed to find a school near their new house. A lovely maintained school was found but a dispute broke out between the school and its local authority, concerning the funding of G's education. G's parents were caught in the cross-fire! Eventually, we had a three-way meeting of the school, the local authority and the parents. We argued on behalf of the parents that this funding dispute was irrelevant. It is the duty of the local authority to provide education that meets G's special needs. Eventually, the school and the local authority agreed to enroll G straight away.
