Case Law Update 28 – SB v Herefordshire – Specificity in EHC Plans

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 dismissed an appeal in relation to a child’s EHC Plan, in particular because there was no error of law in failing to specify the size of the small teaching groups for the child.
