Disagreement resolution is the process for exploring and addressing issues about any aspect of a child's SEN provision, including health and social care disagreements.
It is intended to provide a quick and non-adversarial way to resolve disagreements. They are independent, confidential and do not affect the outcome of a tribunal hearing.
Do parents and young people have to engage with the service?
Before you can register an appeal with the First tier Tribunal service, you must contact a mediation advisor who will provide information on entering into mediation and / or obtaining a certificate from the mediation service.
The only exception to this is if an appeal relates only to section I of an EHC plan - you do not need to consider or contact the mediation services.
