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

Anne Longfield, responding to today’s ruling by the Court of Appeal on removing safeguards for children in care, 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.”
