COVID-19 – SEND Tribunal Guidance

holding hands

The SEND Tribunal has issued recent guidance about how they are coping and progressing hearings amidst the current COVID 19 emergency. Feedback is that that video hearings are working well, and the indication is that the Tribunal may be able to deal with more work and avoid postponements by using remote hearings. They even have availability to offer some cases earlier hearing dates.
