Parklane Plowden offers specialist advice and representation in Education Law. Our experienced team of barristers based in Leeds and Newcastle regularly appear in First Tier Tribunal (Special Educational Needs & Disability) and Upper Tier Tribunals acting on such cases as:

  • Special Educational Needs
  • Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) Appeals (e.g. appeals against refusals to assess, ceasing to maintain and regarding EHCP content including as to need and provision)
  • Pupil Admissions / Exclusions (including challenges to Governing Body and Independent Review Panel decisions)
  • Professional Disciplinary matters (including those which involve Employment Law issues)
  • Disability discrimination in an Education setting (both in the SEND Tribunal and the County Court)
  • Judicial Reviews and Statutory Appeals (particularly relating to the delivery of provision of ECHPs)

The Education Law team is predominantly instructed by Local authorities, governing bodies of schools, colleges and universities but also take and welcome instructions from parents / young people. We are happy to advise, represent and provide training on all education matters.
