Common Ground Mediation
Common Ground Mediation provides independent mediation services to the education community in Scotland. Our core service is helping to resolve disputes between parents and carers of children with additional support needs and the local education authority and/or schools. We work in a number of different areas across Scotland.
Most disagreements can be resolved at an early stage through discussions with staff in the school or the education department. However, education authorities are also required by law to make arrangements for independent mediation as and when required.
Anyone involved in a disagreement can ask for mediation at any stage – parents, young people themselves, the school, or the education department. There is no charge to parents, carers and families. Mediation can be used instead of, or as well as, taking a case to the Additional Support Needs Tribunal.
As conflict resolution professionals, we offer a wide range of different services. You can find out about these as you explore this website.
We hope you will find this website informative and useful. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
