Case Law Update 52 – Redbridge v HO – level of specificity in section F

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 held that a decision of the First-tier Tribunal regarding the contents of an EHC Plan involved the making of an error of law. The Upper Tribunal therefore set aside the decision and remade it, deleting the amendment made to the EHCP.
