Making an appeal if an agreement isn’t reached
You can appeal to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal if you disagree with our decisions about your child's special educational needs, and the disagreement hasn't been resolved by disagreement resolution or mediation.
For example, we may not agree that your child needs extra support in the classroom to help them with learning difficulties.
You usually have to appeal to the tribunal within two months of getting our decision letter.
You can contact us to talk about appeals and tribunals:
- Call us on 020 7926 9460 and 020 7926 7754.
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Appeals against our decisions no longer go to the High Court, but to the 'First-Tier Tribunal' of the British Court System.
