Specialist School Appeals & Education Law Solicitor

Every parent wants their child to enjoy and do well at school. Getting the right education matters to every child. The last thing anyone wants to do is consult solicitors about school, education or training but for sometimes parents need that last resort.

Getting the right school or placement can have a huge impact on a child's future. Admissions for standard mainstream education or where there is an element of disability or special needs can be a fraught, bewildering experience where the stakes are very high. There is a lot of myth and playground rumour, but very little proper advice available.

Where there are special or additional educational needs it is critical that these are properly assessed, reviewed and outcomes monitored. Many children facing exclusions have an element of special needs. The Equality act protects children and adult from prejudice and discrimination. The law can be complex and there is more advice available.

Bullying in recent times has become more invasive. The internet and social media extend to every part of our lives and for young people interaction with one another does not stop at the school gates. Making sure schools and colleges tackle bullying effectively and consistently is so important.

My practice deals with issues across the whole education spectrum, and I have dealt with children and the law for the last 20 years. Click the links for more details. The blog pages contain tips, factsheets, advice and practical advice to download and print off. I offer everyone the opportunity to have a free initial call of about 20 minutes to see what I can offer to help. I keep fees low by working on fixed fees as far as possible and charge an hourly rate that is less than some firms charge out a trainee solicitor!
