About Katherine’s book

With just under 1.5 million pupils in England identified to have special educational needs (‘SEN’) and a record 473,300 Education Health and Care (‘EHC’) plans issued as at January 2022, HMCTS tribunals have recorded 11,000 registered SEN appeals in the academic year 2021/22 alone, an increase of 29% year on year.

SEN appeals are all about resolving disputes between a Local Authority and parents or young people relating to EHC needs assessments and plans. Since 2021, these appeals can be “extended” to include health and social care issues too. Heard in private by independent panels consisting of a judge and 1 or 2 specialist members, these appeals commonly examine expert, specialist evidence.

Katherine Anderson’s detailed practitioner’s guide to this fast-growing area is published by Law Brief Publishing. It addresses in detail the relevant statutory and case law as well as the rules and procedure of the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal which govern these appeals.
