Our lovely Legal Agony Aunt service that we bring you in collaboration with Jane McConnell, CEO of the brilliant legal charity, IPSEA is proving popular, parents and advocates alike are really enjoying the opportunity to ask questions in this manner.
With the new SEND system now four months old, it's frightening that so much information is either not getting out to parents or they are being mis-informed. Often this misinformation is not given to parents in any vindictive manner but because the frontline staff are not getting the information themselves.
Jane has somehow managed to fit us into her unbelievably busy schedule to answer all your queries and we've now entered all the ones that have been answered so far into our Jane's Legal Agony Answers page.
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.
Don't forget that the IPSEA site itself has a huge array of resources regarding the new Children and Families Act. It is easy to navigate too.
If you have a legal SEN question that you think Jane could answer, why not send it in?
Thank you to Jane McConnell and the team at IPSEA for all their help with this feature. Keep the questions coming!
