If you think your child has suffered discrimination in relation to a disability, their race, sex or a combination of these then we would advise you to act quickly. The time limit to bring a claim is 6 months from the last act of discrimination.
All disability discrimination claims against schools must be made to the First Tier Tribunal (Special Educational Needs and Disability). These claims will result in practical solutions such as training for staff, apologies being made and a recognition that the child has been discriminated against - damages will not be awarded.
Any refusal by a school to make reasonable adjustments should be carefully considered as these refusals will need to be justified. Cost is often a prohibitive factor to making reasonable adjustments, but not all reasonable adjustments are prohibitively expensive.
Race or sex discrimination claims can be brought in the County Court and successful claims will result in damages being awarded.
