Enquire gave me the information I needed to progress with my daughter’s transition from primary to secondary school next year. If I require any further help I would have no hesitation in contacting Enquire again
My placing request to a special school was turned down. What can I do now?
If you have made a placing request to a special school in Scotland and your education authority have refused it, you can make an appeal (called a ‘reference’) to the Additional Support Needs Tribunal. You can make the reference if your child has a co-ordinated support plan or not.
If your placing request was for a school in England, Wales or Northern Ireland which makes provision for children with additional support needs the same procedure can be followed.
If you want to make an appeal (called ‘a reference’) to the Additional Support Needs Tribunal you can contact them to ask for advice. The Tribunal’s website is www.asntscotland.gov.uk or you can ring their helpline on 0141 302 5860.
