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.
The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring.

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.
Mr D Cameron, London
Exemplary, professional, supportive, and empathetic. Polite and responsive. A pleasure to work with.
