Special Educational Needs

We had the pleasure of assisting a parent secure a placement for his son at his preferred primary school. This was a long road for our client who had first tried, unsuccessfully, to appeal against the decision not to admit his son to the school, secondly he had to commission independent expert reports and bring an appeal to the First-Tier Tribunal (Special Educational Needs and Disability) to secure a suitably detailed Statement of Special Educational Needs as well as fighting for the primary school to be named in Part 4.  Happily, before the case proceeded to final hearing, the Local Authority confirmed that it agreed with the proposed changes to the Statement, to include, importantly, for our client's son to transition to the primary school and for the primary school to be named in Part 4 of the Statement.  Our client ultimately secured the outcome he had wanted for his son and there was a great sense of relief when he was notified of the start date.  Never did our client think that it would be so difficult to get his son to the local primary school down the road!

I highly recommend everyone to use match solicitor if needed. They provide excellent and fast service during very short period of time.


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.

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.
