Judicial review is remedy whereby a judge will examines the lawfulness of decisions (or a lack of a decision) made by public bodies.
In an education law context, judicial review may be used to challenge:
- A failure of a local authority to put in place the provision outlined in a child’s statement of special educational needs or education, health and care plan;
- A failure of a local authority to provide a child with full time education;
- A failure of a local authority to ensure that a child receives adequate school transport;
- Unlawful decisions to close a school;
Time limits to make an application for judicial review are very short and therefore it is important to get expert legal advice as soon as possible after a decision has been made.
