Coronavirus, EHCPs and the law: Ask SEND Lawyer Hayley Mason

In these unprecedented days, there is a lot of uncertainty, not least about education. What happens to legally-backed provision when schools are closed? If schools arrange online working, what are your child's legal rights? What if schools are closed for a protracted period? What if you have a tribunal coming up? Or an EHCP assessment pending?

Our columnist, SEND lawyer, Hayley Mason, Director and senior solicitor at SEN Legal, is offering to answer your questions about the legal implications as they relate to education law and issues around coronavirus and potential forced school closures.

You don't have long - you need to get your question in by Friday at 5pm.
