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 the meaning of the expression ‘educates or trains’ in relation to the dividing line between educational and social care provision in the context of Education, Health and Care plans (EHCPs).
