Formal Disagreement Resolution

The Disagreement Resolution Service is there to help resolve three kinds of disagreement between parents or young people and the organisations that are responsible for making provision for children and young people with special educational needs. These are:

  • How early years providers, schools and further education institutions carry out their duties for children and young people with SEN.
  • The special educational provision made for a child or young person by early years providers, schools or further education institutions.
  • Health or social care provision when this part of an EHC needs assessment, while EHC plans are being drawn up, reviewed or when children or young people are being reassessed.
