Case Law Update 36 – S v Camden – Amendments to 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 High Court quashed a local authority’s decision to issue an amended EHC Plan and declared that the local authority was in breach of its duty to secure the special educational provision specified in the previous plan, being an ABA programme.
