EHCP Tribunal and School placement down the road from birth family

Bluewaves December 22, 2022 10:57

We are facing a Tribunal shortly for Section I School Placement as they are placing at local mainstream which is unsuitable and does not meet EHCP needs.

We had a meeting with SEND Services Local Authority to move forward and they, without our knowledge, have consulted with a special school where the birth family live.

In view of the circumstances of our Local Authority adoption this is a significant safeguarding issue but will the tribunal see it like that and how do I go about evidencing that this placement is not suitable due to safeguarding issues?

Hi Bluewaves. That sounds crazy. You could try IPSEA - they have a free legal helpline and they're very helpful. Good luck.
