SEND Mediation Statistics


We’re commissioned by Suffolk County Council to offer special educational needs and disability (SEND) provision mediation services. Between September 2020 and August 2021 we delivered 194 mediations. Of those:

  • 83 resulted in an agreement to assess or reassess.
  • 27 were taken back to panel for review or re-consideration for a variety of reasons.
  • 15 resulted in standing by the original decision not to assess.
  • The remaining 69 had a range of positive outcomes for the child such as; advice provided to school, additional support agreed, referrals to SEP panels, consultation with specialist provisions, co-production meetings and way forward meetings organised.

As with all of our services, mediation always has the young person and their family at the centre.
