Going To Appeal/Tribunal

If you are not happy with the decision the LA has made about your child's special educational needs then you may be able to appeal against this decision. The body of people who deal with this are called the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal (SENDIST).

SENDIST are an independent tribunal set up by an Act of Parliament. They hear and decide parents' appeals against the decisions of Local Authorities (LAs) about childrens special educational needs, where parents cannot reach agreement with the LA.

If you decide to go ahead with your appeal you will need to Special Educational Needs - How to Appeal booklet, which is available by telephoning 01325 392555, which will give you full details on appealing. You must lodge your appeal within two months of the LAs decision. Even if you decide to send in an appeal, you should continue to try to sort out your disagreement with the LA.
