Case Law Update 8 - Maintained Schools

Steve BroachAuthor Steve BroachDate 01 Jul 2016

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.

This review looks at a case concerned with the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham where the Upper Tribunal considered the proper approach to the assessment of relative placement costs for maintained and independent schools.
