Many Ph.D. students believe that when they are the victims of poor or unfair treatment at the hands of their lecturers or supervisors, they have little option but to accept this treatment and no legal right to defend themselves. However, this is thankfully not the case.
An EHCP is a legally binding agreement between the Local Authority and the child or young person with special educational needs. If you feel that your child's school is not doing enough to adhere to the recommendations contained in their EHCP, there are ways to improve this situation.
Cyberbullying is increasingly becoming an issue for teachers. Cyberbullying is serious, no matter who is the bully and the victim. Teachers are entitled to the same amount of protection under the law as pupils.
The 2010 Equality Act means that universities must make reasonable adjustments to ensure that disabled students and students with any kind of special educational needs receive as good an education as able-bodied students.
Each year the parents of more than half a million children in England wait to be told whether or not their children have been accepted by their first choice of secondary school. If you're not one of the lucky ones who got their first choice of school for your child, take a look at our list of the top 10 things to do if you think you might want to make an appeal.
For most people, sitting exams is a fairly stressful experience. However, the experience can be made worse if there are circumstances that are wholly beyond the control of the students taking the exam. Extraneous circumstances can lead to dire consequences for exam results.
Although the law states that an infant class in the UK must not exceed 30 children, there are a number of circumstances in which additional pupils may be included in a class and classed as 'exceptions'. The Government has made a list of the specific circumstances in which a child might be categorised as an exception.
All universities, colleges and other educational institutions within the UK are subject to the 2010 Equality Act. Once a student's university is aware of their disability, it is then obliged under the law to ensure that there are systems in place that will address and ameliorate any potential problems arising from that student's disability.
If your child's education is being consistently disrupted by another child and you feel the school is not doing enough to rectify the situation, you do have the right to complain. Ideally, any complaint you have with your child's school can be rectified by an informal discussion. If not, you will need to refer to the school's formal complaints procedure.

Match Solicitors were highly recommended to us not only for their undisputed comprehensive knowledge of the SEN legal minefield, but for their understanding of autism and other disorders and consequent compassionate work ethic. Their diligence and consummate professionalism ensured that the Local Authority were forced to take our son’s case seriously. It is almost impossible to articulate how grateful we are to Rishi and Anita for their hard work and dedication.
