Specialists in Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)

Meresbrook Pollard provides legal support and guidance to parents of children with special education needs and disabilities (SEND). We understand the challenges that having a special child with educational needs brings to parents to have a strong ethos of the child being firmly at the heart of everything we do!

We have a lead consultant who was a special school head teacher for 19 years and continues to support lots of schools with all issues relating to SEND therefore maintaining up-to-date knowledge of all things related to SEND.

We can help if:

  • You feel that your child is not getting the right help at school;
  • You do not think your child is being treated fairly at school;
  • Your child’s Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or Statement of SEN does not accurately state their needs or if the school is not following it properly;
  • You are not happy with your child’s school placement and want them to go to a different school;
  • Your child has been refused an assessment as part of the EHCP process; or
  • You are appealing to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal (SENDIST)

Our partner organisation, SENTAS, can help if you have a problem with school transport for your child.

Whether you would like a little advice through to full representation at a Tribunal we will be happy to help!

  • 5 star review  Meresbrooke Pollard Solicitors are one of the best firms I have had experience with. Zahida and Shazia helped me with my spouse visa with a high level of professionalism and guided me through the whole process. They were always available to answer my queries and concerns. I couldn't thank them enough for all the help and support they provided which lead to a successful spouse visa within 8 weeks. Thank you for everything I really cant express how thankful I am to you for helping me through this process. I would recommend their service to anyone who is looking for a first time successful application for a visa and I will be definitely returning in the future to use their services again. Thank You

  • 5 star review  I am extremely happy with the professional and caring legal advice and service I received from Meresbrook Pollard Solicitors. with an extra special thanks to Shazia from the firm. I made contact with Shazia in September 2020 at a time where I had lost all hope whilst trying to be reunited with my partner. We have been separated for almost 4 years as he had to leave the UK due to visa refusals. On top of that, we had many complexities in our case, due to previous bad immigration history, personal family circumstances and even accumulated debt left behind in the UK. Being aware of this, I got in touch with Shazia and explained to her my situation and what I required. She was very attentive and guided me through a new spouse visa application for my partner. Although we were and still are in the midst of a pandemic and with working from home and all, Shazia really made me feel comfortable and reassured me throughout the whole process. The firm were always available for when I had a query or concern and very responsive to my emails and phone calls. So we applied in November 2020 and thankfully received the visa earlier this week in Feb 2021. I cant begin to explain how pleased I am with the result and I am so happy I decided to go ahead with Meresbook Pollard Solicitors and I would 100% recommend them to friends and family in the future.
