Case Law Update 32 – St Helens v TE

In this update, the Upper Tribunal refused to overturn a decision to educate a 7-year-old boy at an independent school, given that his refusal to attend a mainstream school made that option inappropriate.

This case involved an appeal by the local authority against a decision of the First Tier Tribunal (‘FTT’) concerning the education of a boy of 7, who had autistic spectrum disorder (‘ASD’). The dispute between his parents and the local authority concerned whether he should be educated at a maintained primary school (the local authority’s proposed school) or an independent special school (the school sought by the parents).
