Resolve a school dispute if your child has additional needs

Last updated: 2 August 2019

The Additional Support Needs Tribunal for Scotland (ASNTS) can resolve school disputes if:

  • your child has additional support needs or a disability
  • your dispute is over their education

Young people aged 16 or 17 can also refer themselvers to the ASNTS.

ASNTS can look at the dispute and make an impartial decision that should resolve the problem.

Visit the Additional Support Needs Tribunal for Scotland website for more information on the process, including:

  • making a reference or claim
  • getting the views of the child or young person
  • representation
  • what happens after the claim is made
  • the hearing and decision
  • your right to appeal
  • getting help and support
