senior school and allocated hours

My daughter is 11 has sox2 anopthalmia, cerebral palsey (uses a wheelchair), has a learning disability and mental health issues.. In primary school she was assessed and allocated 26 hours by the local authority. She is now in her first year at mainstream senior school and it would appear she is only been given 13 hours support out of the 26. I've queried this  and they said that they are monitoring how much support she needs. My daughter tells me they don't have the staff and she is often coming home distressed and is effecting her eating. I'm not sure what the way forward is other than me going in again but I'm concerned that as I'm seen probably as just the parent i'm going to get fobbed off. I'm going to ask them what they are doing with her other hours but other than that i'm not sure where i stand from a legal point. Any suggestions?
