Global Mediation Service

Global Mediation offers a complete education and special education needs, SEN, mediation service for issues including bullying, communication breakdowns, disputes with Schools and Local Authorities and compensation claims.

For children with special education needs or ‘SEN’, disagreements about what course of action is in the best interests of the child and the one that most closely matches the child’s needs can often require the services of an experienced, independent mediator if no agreement can be reached.

Local Authorities are legally obliged to provide SEN mediation and disagreement resolution in relation to disputes between parents and carers and young people, schools and Local Authorities over your special education needs or, as a parent, those of your child. 

We are an experienced provider of SEN mediation and disagreement resolution Services which will –

  • improve the channels of communication and understanding between the parties
  • progress towards and then reach realistic, practical solutions that meet the needs of all concerned, especially the child
  • cause minimal disruption to the child’s education
