“When school staff have an understanding of different additional support needs and can understand certain behaviours, it helps them understand why young people may act in a particular way”
STEPS YOU CAN TAKE IF YOU’RE NOT GETTING THE SUPPORT YOU NEED…
Talk to an adult you trust.
This could be a parent, carer or someone at school. Share how you’re feeling or what you’re struggling with. If the support you’re getting isn’t working, it’s important to talk to someone about it.
If talking to someone in your school hasn’t helped…
There are other ways to sort out problems. If you’re aged between 12-15 you can get help from My Rights, My Say to make sure the school are listening. They can also help you think about what other steps you might want to take.
The Additional Support Needs Tribunal will look at some disagreements about support plans.
This includes if you think you should have a Coordinated Support Plan (a legal plan, sometimes called a CSP).
If you think your school is treating you unfairly because of a disability…
the Additional Support Needs Tribunal will also hear these cases. To find out more visit their website.
