The Advisory Centre for Education (ACE) is a national charity that provides independent advice for parents and carers of children aged 5-16 in state schools in England. We aim to help parents and carers understand an increasingly complex education system so that they can help their children to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Our information is based on current education law and guidance and covers state funded education for children aged 5-16 years in England only. Our advice and information aims to give parents up to date knowledge of law and guidance as well as practical and tactical advice on how to work with their child's school to resolve any concerns. Our advice covers a wide range of educational issues.
ACE is part of the SEND Information Organisations Group (SENDIOG) - a network of like minded organisations that provide free and impartial advice to children, young people and their families.
