Appealing against a refusal to assess your child
We hope that the resources listed at the bottom of this page will help you put together an effective case and benefit from our many years of supporting parents at Tribunal. The Refusal to Assess pack has a useful 'Practicalities' section. This includes a checklist and timetable to help you remember important deadlines. The 'Making your case' section helps you to focus on making sure you have the right evidence. You can download model letters and extracts from this section.
Many parents successfully represent themselves at the Tribunal. Our 'Going to a SEND Tribunal' web page has lots of helpful information along with links to useful videos.
If you are unclear or unsure about anything, you can contact IPSEA's Tribunal Helpline for more support.
