Our service achieves the following outcomes: -


  • Demonstrate due diligence and a consistent approach
  • Collation of relevant and purposeful evidence to support informed decision making
  • Develop efficient, legally compliant systems, processes and protocol
  • Reduce escalation of complaints through early intervention and LA mitigating actions
  • Demonstrate the 'person centered approach' of the SEN offering from the LA, Local Offer, services and schools
  • Ensure services are cohesive, efficient, value for money and accessible
  • Protect and mitigate the risk of the LA position at the earliest stage

This service is a pro-active, early intervention approach by the LA or school to mitigate the risk in complex situations. Every case will result in a review, a full report and recommendations to mitigate risk, avoid escalation and strengthen positions.
We offer unrivalled expertise as we work with the LAs and schools, with their best interest as the focal point of our service.

We offer a flexible and bespoke approach to our clients’ needs in respect of service and fees. If you would like to discuss our service offering or have any queries please contact us by email here.
