Duty to specify and make provision for meeting special educational needs


Re: ME v London Borough of Southwark [2017] UKUT 0073 (AAC)

The case concerned the education, health and care plan of O due to his transfer to secondary education. The local authority named a special school in his plan, S school, but the parents preferred SHC school, which was mainstream. The Upper Tribunal held that the previous tribunal erred in law and the case needed to be reheard.

David Wolfe QC was involved in this case.
