ALLFIE at the High Court

Protestors outside the High Court holding up an ALLFIE banner saying "Educate Don't Segregate", with other protestors holding up a banner saying "WinVisible, Women with visible and invisible disabilities"ALLFIE is supporting a case by campaign group SEND Action – Disabled Children versus Chancellor of the Exchequer & Secretary of State for Education. This case centres on the lawfulness of government cuts to SEND provision and their impact on inclusive education. We would welcome your support at the court on 26th – 27th June, so put this date in your diary. More details to follow.

In January we turned out in force at the High Court to back a family’s battle for their child’s right to support in mainstream education. This is very much a human rights case. We are now awaiting the judge’s decision on whether the local authority’s policy of delegating responsibility for employing support staff to individual schools is lawful. ALLFIE’s concerns were cited in arguments.
