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.
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.Read the case briefing →

The Inclusion Champions Project
Inclusive education is the basis for lifelong equality of Disabled people, and a core part of independent living. We work with a network of Disabled People’s Organisations to raise awareness and engage locally around education issues, providing resources and training.
Is your secondary school accessible?
Join our research into school accessibility plans and tell us about your experiences.
By law, schools should make accessibility plans to enable Disabled children and young people to access school facilities and make the most of their education.
We’re running focus groups and surveys with parents, education professionals and Disabled young people to establish how well these plans are working.
