The response to our Legal Agony Aunt service that we bring you in collaboration with Jane McConnell, CEO of the brilliant legal charity, IPSEA continues to be amazing!
With the new SEND system now a term old, it's clear that confusion rules and parents are not getting the information they can rely on from local authorities - you can read more about this in our post from earlier this week.
Jane has beavered away in between her usual busy schedule answering all your queries and we're now entered all the ones that have been answered so far into our Jane's Legal Agony Answers page. There are quite a few in there already and more will be added over the weekend, so keep coming back!
All the new questions are in the appropriate categories marked as 'NEW'. Please do share this service, that Jane provides for free, with your friends who have SEND children. There are a wide variety of questions and it's good to check through them all in case one crops up that you need the answer to!
If you want to make sure you don't miss further answers or articles, do sign up to our email notifications for new posts.
There is also a wealth of general SEND legal information on the IPSEA site itself that is one of the most easy to use I have seen.
If you have a legal SEN question that you think Jane could answer, why not send it in?
Remember though, if your question is complex, highly personal or very urgent please contact IPSEA's free advice line instead on 0800 018 4016. Their Christmas opening hours are on their website.
Thank you to Jane McConnell and the team at IPSEA for all their help with this feature. Keep the questions coming!
