Turner's Solicitors education law specialists

Turner’s is headed by Emma Turner, a Solicitor and experienced advocate in education cases.

Emma has developed a first class reputation across England and Wales as a specialist in this area of law.

Every parent wishes for the best possible opportunities for their child, whether their child attends a mainstream school or has Special Educational Needs (SEN) that require specialist teaching.

Education law protects the interests of children with SEN but all too often legal obligations need to pointed out to local authorities and schools. Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP) can be key to securing the best education for children with SEN.

Whether you are tired of fighting the system or your child has Special Educational Needs that are not being met, Emma Turner can help.  Call for a free telephone consultation – 01656 768500

You may have school admission issues; your child may be excluded or may have experienced discrimination in school. Whichever the case, Turner’s Solicitors provide specialist legal advice in all areas of education law. We can help parents to obtain the best possible opportunities for their child, whatever their special needs or learning difficulties.

We take clients through the process of obtaining a statutory assessment and securing or amending a statement of special educational needs. In cases that have ended up in tribunal, Emma Turner has a success rate in excess of 95%.

Some clients arrive with us already having received a statement of SEN, which they seek to improve or change school. Other clients have a statement which the authority/school is not following.

Specialist legal advice is also given in Higher and Further Education matters, whether it be securing specialist provision or bringing complaints to Universities and appealing to the Office of Independent Adjudicator.
