Case Law Update 31 – C and C v Governing Body Etc – Disability discrimination where children with a ‘tendency to physical abuse’ excluded from school

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 found that ‘L’ had been discriminated against on the grounds of his disability in respect of a fixed term exclusion from school.
