Para. 3.21 of the Appeals Code states:
Appeals by the parent of a child with a statement of Special Educational Needs against the choice of school named in the statement, or the fact that no school has been named, are considered by the First-tier Tribunal (Special Educational Needs and Disability), not a school admission appeal panel.
I suggest that you contact your local Parent Partnership for advice and support.
Here are some other suggestions our members have made:
This is a charity which offers free advice to families of children with disabilities and they have a helpline. Etienne, as this is a free access charity I trust it is acceptable to link here?
I don't class myself as wise or knowledable but wanted to recommend Network 81 and SOS!SEN. Both deal with education & SEN issues ....... I spoke with our local Network 81 rep today & now find myself on the long road to 2nd opinions, statements & funding private ed. psych reports as well as wrestle with the issue of appealing to grammar schools renowned for a very low success rate.
