Education Law

Naomi Webber has a growing education practice. She regularly advises and acts for parents, local authorities and schools. Her experience includes:

  • Regularly appearing in the First-tier Tribunal for parents and local authorities in EHCP appeals, including refusal to issue EHC plans and appeals of sections B, F and I.
  • Acting for parents and schools in disability discrimination claims in the First-tier Tribunal
  • Clerking school admissions panels and independent review panels (school exclusions)
  • Advising parents in breach of contract claims against independent schools
  • Drafting pleadings for a breach of contract claim in the higher education sector

She also regularly provides training to local authorities on admissions, exclusions and EHCP appeals.

Prior to pupillage, Naomi worked as a research assistant at the University of Oxford, examining the effect of the 2012 changes to the law of school exclusions.

Naomi has a particular interest in religion in education and wrote her masters’ dissertation on whether children have a right to a secular education.
