We represented our client whose daughter was excluded from an independent school, following an incident concerning substance abuse. Our client’s daughter was otherwise a good student, achieving well, though she had recently been diagnosed with ADHD. The incident leading to the exclusion took place after the diagnosis. Our client approached us in order to seek assistance in relation to the issue of fees and that the school provide the opportunity for our client to withdraw her daughter as oppose to be excluded to assist to find a place at another school. We wrote to the Head Teacher with a detailed and amicable letter addressing our client’s points. The Head Teacher instructed the school’s Legal Team and thereafter accepted our position and allowed our client to withdraw her daughter from the school. The exclusion does not appear on her record. Our client’s daughter is now attending a new school and her studies are going well.

“ 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. ”
“ 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. ”
