 IPSEA: case law
This aspect of the case is unique in two ways: it features an LEA appealing on the ground that special educational provision should be quantified in a Statement (as opposed to defending the position that quantification is not required).
Also, it contains the only actual example in case law of a child who does not require their Statemented provision to be quantified: as such, the very exceptional nature of S's needs, provisions and placement give an indication of how rare non-quantification should be.
If in the present case nothing other than a sentence on the lines of ‘£6,000 is allocated to pay for all P’s needs’ has appeared in part 3 of the statement I would have regarded this as not complying with the requirements of specificity contained in the statute and regulations.

This case has become such a controversy because of Terri's parents' insistence that their daughter would not wish to die under these circumstances and their claim that Terri is conscious and responsive to stimulation.
