Case law update 18 - post-16 placements

Steve BroachAuthor Steve BroachDate 13 Jul 2017

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 Upper Tribunal gave guidance on issues including whether the First-tier Tribunal could order amendments to the outcomes section of EHC plans and how appeals in relation to independent schools should be approached.
