Statement on yesterday’s ruling by the Court of Appeal on removing safeguards for children in care

Anne Longfield, yesterday responded to the ruling by the Court of Appeal on removing safeguards for children in care

She yesterday said:

“I am delighted that the Court of Appeal has recognised the vital importance of the voice of the child in care in decisions taken that affect them – including, and I would argue especially, during a pandemic.

“We will now be seeking reassurances from the Department for Education about how this won’t be repeated in the future.”
