We recently acted for the parents of a young child with a highly complex and medically unique range of difficulties that had unfortunately rendered him hospitalised for the majority of his childhood. The child’s education suffered as a result as he was unable to attend school on a regular basis.
Today is the start of anti-bullying week and we want to raise the topic of cyber bullying and get people talking about it. We all know that the internet can be a great force for good information, but unfortunately the opposite is equally as true.
It’s Anti-Bullying week from the 16th to 20th November so we thought it would be timely to address what action you can take if your child is being bullied. This year’s theme is about ‘making a noise’ about bullying.
Just because your university has turned down your appeal or complaint against them, that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the story and you have to accept your fate. There are still avenues that you can explore to get the decision reviewed and this is where the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education (OIA) comes in.
I found the overall service extremely professional, knowledgeable, efficient and sensitive with regard to my matter. I felt Match always kept me informed and abreast of procedures with legal explanation wherever necessary. arose I would have no hesitation in approaching Match again and would have pleasure in recommending their services to anyone in need of professional educational assistance.

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.
Mr & Mrs Williams, Hertfordshire
Whilst the SENDIST appeal process requires patience and clarity, we found Match Solicitors provided a faultless service. Diligent whilst being understanding. Our son is now in the school we required and is thriving due to the support of Match Solicitors throughout the process.
