Section 52: Release from detention of child or young person with special educational needs

150.Section 52(2) inserts a new section 312A into the Education Act 1996. New section 312A(1) suspends Part 4 of the Education Act 1996 while the person is detained in juvenile custody. Part 4 makes provision for children with special educational needs, and would otherwise apply while the person is detained in juvenile custody by virtue of the amendments of section 562 of that Act made by section 49. New Chapter 5A of Part 10 of that Act (inserted by section 50) makes provision for the education of children with special educational needs during the period of that detention. New section 312A(3) revives any statement that was maintained for a person prior to their detention in juvenile custody on their release and makes provision for the statement to transfer to the authority who will be responsible for maintaining it under Part 4 on the person’s release.

151.Section 52(3) amends section 328(5) of the Education Act 1996 (reviews of educational needs) to require the local authority maintaining the statement to review the child’s statement on their release from juvenile custody.
