Case Law Update 40 – AD v Hackney (HC) – Challenge to local authority policy for provision of support to children with SEND

In this update two policies adopted by a London borough in relation to the provision of support for children with SEND were found to be lawful. The council was entitled to use ‘Resource Levels’ to allocate additional funding to mainstream schools, and a 5% reduction in the value of each level was made lawfully. There was also nothing unlawful about the format adopted by the council for its EHC Plans.
