Emily Lanham is successful in Special Educational Needs tribunal

Published on 27/09/2019

The placement was originally refused on the grounds that the child did not require a waking day curriculum which would be at a disproportionate cost to the Local Authority (Hampshire CC v JP [2009] UKUT 239 AAC and Hammersmith & Fulham v JH [2012] 328 AAC considered).

The tribunal considered the evidence presented on behalf of the young person and named a specialist placement with a waking day curriculum in the child’s EHCP.
