It is also a requirement of the Children & Families Act 2014 for each Local Authority to provide parent’s access to an independent Mediation and Disagreement Resolution Service.
Global Mediation provides access to independent disagreement resolution and/or mediation to help when parents, carers or young people and the education authority cannot agree on how to meet a child or young person’s special educational needs.
They offer guidance including:
- Independent information and advice about mediation before registering and appeal
- How to request mediation or a disagreement resolution meeting
