Section 6: Maintenance of statement during appeal

57.One of the grounds on which parents can appeal to the SENT is where an LEA proposes to cease maintaining a statement of the child's SEN. This section amends the EA by adding a new sub-paragraph (5) to paragraph 11 of Schedule 27 obliging the LEA to continue to maintain the child's statement until the outcome of this type of appeal is known.
