• Hannah Taylor was joined by Steve Broach from 39 Essex Chambers for a Special Educational Needs and Disability “snapshot” in which Steve considered:

    • An overview of the National Plan for SEND to consider the strategic direction;
    • Where do we draw the line between education and health provision;
    • The overlap between SEND and NHS Children’s Continuing Care/NHS Continuing Healthcare;
    • Education otherwise than at school and college post the Covid-19 pandemic; and
    • The rising use of judicial review in the wake of the backlog with Tribunal hearings.

    Steve is a public lawyer with particular expertise in health, education and social care and disability and children’s rights cases.
