elation to the statutory infant class size limits 187 . However, this does not affect any power of the governing body to exclude a learner from a school 188 . Placements at Independent Schools 13.21 Occasionally, a child or young person’s needs may be such that it would not be possible for them to be met in a maintained school. The local authority might then consider it appropriate for the individual to attend an independent school. 13.22 Section 49 of the Act sets out the circumstances in which a local authority may fund a placement at an independent school or independent educational institution for a child with ALN. If the independent school is in Wales 13.23 There are two key tests that must be met: Firstly, the school must be included in the register of independent schools in Wales 189 and Secondly, the local authority is satisfied that the school can make the ALP as identified in the child or young person’s IDP? 190 13.24 If the tests above are met, the local authority may decide that the placement is appropriate – the placement details will then form part of the ALP described in the IDP. The local authority must secure the ALP described in the IDP, along with any related board and lodging 191 and must not charge the individual or parents for it 192 . If the independent educational institution is in England 13.25 A similar test applies in relation to placements at independent educational institutions in England 193 ; The institution must be included in the register of independent educational institutions in England; and 187 Section 42(5) of the Act. 188 Section 42(6) of the Act. 189 The Act makes amendments to the Education Act 2002 to require the Welsh Ministers to publish a list of the schools included in the register of independent schools in Wales – this is the document to which local authorities should refer. The list will specify the type or types of ALP made by a school for learners with ALN (if any) where this information has been provided by the proprietor of the school and section 48 of the Act. 190 Section 49(1)(b)). 191 Section 17(6) of the Act. 192 Section 43 of the Act. 193 Section 49 of the Act.

The local authority must be satisfied that the institution can make the ALP identified in the child or young person’s IDP. 13.26 Where a parent or child would prefer an independent school but the local authority is satisfied that the child’s needs can be met within a maintained education setting, the local authority is not required to fund the learner’s place at the independent school. However, where this situation arises, the local authority should ensure that they give the parent and child a full outline of the how the learner’s needs could be met without recourse to an independent placement, for example by funding transport to and from the maintained education setting. 13.27 When a local authority is considering whether they should place the child or young person at an independent school they should consider: whether evidence demonstrates that the ALP necessary to meet the child or young person’s ALN is only available in that independent school; whether evidence demonstrates that an essential element of the child or young person’s education and training can only be provided in a residential setting; whether the child or young person requires an educational stetting with an extended curriculum which cannot be provided in a non-residential setting; whether the child or young person has medical and/or social care needs that cannot be met by, or in conjunction with, local providers in a mainstream education setting and which would prevent him/her from accessing education or training suitable to meet their identified needs; whether securing the provision would be compatible with the avoidance of unreasonable public expenditure. Placements at Independent Special Post-16 Institutions 13.28 Whilst the ALP necessary to meet the reasonable needs for education and training of most young people with ALN can be met within a mainstream FEI, some young people will require a place at an independent special post- 16 institution to ensure their reasonable needs are met. A learner would have a reasonable need for further education or training where educational or training provision specific to their additional learning need would continue their progress towards reaching their full potential or if that educational or training provision is available to someone of their age in an FEI.
