ALLFIE at the High Court

ALLFIE turned out in force at the High Court on the 23rd and 24th January to back a family’s battle for their child’s right to support in mainstream education. This is very much a human rights case.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"

The court is being asked to decide whether the local authority’s policy of delegating responsibility for employing visual impairment teaching assistants to individual schools is lawful.

ALLFIE’s concerns were cited in arguments, along with the Equality Act and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities . We are now awaiting the judge’s decision.
