Williams v Essex County Council: [2011] EWCA Civ 1315;  [2011] WLR (D)  329

“A statement of special educational needs automatically lapsed when a person ceased to be a child, which was at 19 years. The Court of Appeal so stated when allowing the appeal of Essex County Council against a decision of Judge Jacobs in the Upper Tribunal (Administrative Appeals Chamber) on 8 March 2010 setting aside a decision of the First-tier Tribunal (Health, Education and Social Care Chamber) of 8 September 2009 that it was no longer necessary to maintain the statement of special educational needs of MW (now aged 22 years), the daughter of the claimant, Antony John Williams.”
