About Education Services

Tollers provides invaluable guidance and support for educational establishments and parents alike. 

Whether advising schools through the complexities of attaining academy status, or assisting parents with educational disputes, such as appealing for school places or pursuing educational negligence claims, we apply our expertise and experience to the matter in hand.


Tollers has acted successfully for numerous primary schools, secondary schools and Multi Academy Trusts, and has been praised for our no-nonsense approach to providing advice in a clear, concise and timely manner.  We will liaise with the Department of Education and the Local Authority to ensure the conversion process is as smooth as possible.

Our highly experienced and specialist solicitors have a well-earned reputation with past and current clients for being approachable, accessible and supportive. We aim to take a pragmatic and pro-active role when helping you convert your school to academy status and, afterwards, assisting you with the governance and running of your academy or Multi Academy Trust.

Academies - Tollers Solicitors

This means, once we’ve identified your precise needs, we leave you to focus on your day-to-day work and only ask you to provide information and look at legal documents when absolutely necessary.

School Appeals

It is disappointing for everyone when young people do not get a place at their preferred school.  You can appeal the decision, and Tollers can provide expert advice, guidance and representation during the appeal process.

School Appeals - Tollers Solicitors

It will be necessary to make an appeal in writing, or by email, to the admissions authority before the date specified in the allocation letter you receive. An independent panel will then consider your case at an appeal hearing.

Education, Health and Care Plans/
Special Educational Needs

If your child, or a child under your care has special educational needs, you will already have to cope with challenges every day. You also have the added pressure to make sure they benefit in full from the education system.

Education, Health and Care Plans - Tollers SolicitorsFinding the best way forward can feel daunting and overwhelming. This is where Tollers’ education law specialists can help ensure everyone gets the help and support they are entitled to.

Education, Health and Care Plans/
Statements of Special Educational Needs

Education, Health and Care Plans/Statements of Educational Needs for a child are normally quite straightforward, but can also be comprehensive and complex depending on your child’s needs. We can advise on the process of obtaining a plan/statement, as well as its contents. We also offer specialist advice for breaches of these plans/statements, or if they need amending.

The Special Education Needs and Disability Tribunal (SENDIST) hears appeals from parents and guardians regarding unresolved issues with a child’s special educational or disability needs. We have extensive experience preparing appeals relating to statutory assessments of a child’s needs, the content or cessation of statements, and the refusal to make a statement after a child has been assessed. We’re also experienced in preparing appeals and representing clients at hearings where statement provisions are not being met.

If you feel a child’s educational needs are not being met, Tollers expert solicitors can advise if there is a case for negligence against the educational body. If there is, we can act on your behalf and take the necessary steps to resolve the issue and pursue a claim for compensation.  Alternatively, we can try to resolve the problem by agreement.

We can also offer educational bodies advice on claims against them for educational negligence.
