Child’s Right to Appeal Project 

From Spring 2012, children and young people living in Carmarthenshire and Wrexham local authority areas will have the right to:

  • Appeal certain decisions made by their local authority about their special educational needs.
  • Bring a claim about disability discrimination against schools in Carmarthenshire and Wrexham.

The appeal and claim rights are identical to those that already exist for parents/carers. This does not affect the parental right to make an appeal and claim. It simply means that children and young people now have the same rights as their parents/carers to make their own appeal or claim.
The Additional Learning Needs Family Support Workers have developed the following:-

  • Compilation of resources that can assist in the planning and delivery of children’s rights work.
  • Additional resources around the statutory assessment process and the right to appeal
