Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act 2018

Section 24 - Review and revision of individual development plans for looked after children

70.Section 24 makes provision in relation to looked after children equivalent to that in section 23, unless the looked after child is in the area of a local authority in England and attending a maintained school in Wales, in which case, the governing body has review functions under section 23.

71.In addition to the requirements of this section, a local authority looking after a child has other functions related to the review of the child’s IDP. These are the functions in relation to the review of a care and support plan under and by virtue of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 (see section 83 of that Act as amended by section 16 of the Act). Since any IDP for a looked after child maintained under section 19 must be incorporated into any personal education plan, which in turn is part of the care and support plan, those functions related to reviews cover the IDP.
