Fact of the fortnight
Some children and young people who have medical needs may not be able to access full-time education within a school environment. Local Authorities have a responsibility to provide full-time education for such pupils otherwise than at school and who, by reason of illness, are unable to receive suitable education unless such arrangements are made for them by the Local Authority. It is unlawful for Local Authorities to not make arrangements for the provision of suitable education for children who are unable to attend school because of their medical needs.
