Replacing conflict with harmony
Mediation and disagreement resolution services

this is a free service for parents and carers of children with special educational needs

The children and families act 2014 requires all local authorities to provide independent Mediation and disagreement resolution services to help when parents or young people cannot agree with the local authorities or other providers about the special educational, health or care provision of a child or young person. Other providers include early years settings, school, colleges and other post 16 provisions.

The disagreement resolution arrangements are for all children and young people who have special educational needs (send), not just those who are being assessed for, or have an education, health and care plan.

The Mediation arrangements are for those who are considering making an appeal to the 1st tier tribunal  (send). The law says that young people or parents who want to appeal to 1st tier tribunal (send) must 1st contact a Mediation adviser. Once you have had Mediation advice they will issue a certificate so that you can lodge an appeal. You do not have to have Mediation advice if your appeal is only about a placement. The health and social care elements of an EHC plan or if it is a disability discrimination claim.

Your right to appeal is not affected weather you agree to Mediation or not, the tribunal will not make any assumptions if you choose not to try Mediation.

Mediation in a nutshell.

* gets the right people and information together to try to come to an agreement without further delay.
* it gives you a chance to speak freely and to be listened to.
* it helps focus on the important issues and the needs of your child.
* it gives you a chance to build a better working relationship with the professionals involved.

how it works and timescales.

*then they will arrange a meeting within 30 days of your request (this is the timescale set out in the SEND code of practise) on a date that is agreed by everyone.you can bring a friend or family member to support you. they have to confirm in writting at least 5 days before the Mediation meeting.
* the mediator will make sure that everyone is fairly heard and listened to.
* then the mediator will look for a solution that everyone is happy with and can agree to once everyone is happy with the agreement the mediator then draws up a written agreement that everyone then signs.
