There could be a number of reasons why you want to appeal to the SEND Tribunal. It may be helpful to start off describing (briefly) your child’s health or social care needs and what help or support you are seeking from social services or the health authority. You may be unhappy about the lack of provision offered, or the provision may not be suitable or adequate.

You should provide as much information as you can, but you do not need to set out your whole case with evidence at this point and neither do you have to refer to any specific laws.

We would also recommend reading the sections of our website which provide general advice for all appeals, and more specific advice about appeals regarding the contents of an EHC plan.
