Case law update 25 - EHC plans and non-maintained schools

Steve BroachAuthor Steve BroachDate 15 Mar 2018

This is part of our case law series reviewing judgements relating to the implementation of the Children and Families Act 2014.

Each review looks at a specific case and explains the potential implications for parents, local authorities and sector practitioners. The reviews have been produced for us by Barrister Steve Broach.

In this update, the First-tier Tribunal erred in ordering that an EHC Plan should be amended to name a non-maintained school when the CCG were refusing to fund the ‘clinical’ element of the fees. ​
