unstar this property answer text <p>The Court rejected two of the three legal grounds brought by the claimants, finding that their human rights had not been breached and not awarding damages.</p><p> </p><p>Where the Court found that the historic delay for the two claimants was unlawful, they also ruled that they are not “test cases” and it would be inappropriate to make wider findings.</p><p> </p><p>The Court accepted that the Government had made significant improvements to the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) process and there are now no inherent failings in the system.</p><p> </p><p>As a result of these improvements, the average time taken for a claimant to be assessed by an assessment provider has fallen by more than three quarters since June 2014. In April 2015, the average new claimant was waiting 5 weeks for their PIP assessment – well within the 16 week target set by the Secretary of State.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Education does not collect data on numbers of children educated at home.</p><p> </p><p>The Department's published guidance for local authorities on elective home education makes it clear that, although the primary responsibility for a child's education rests with the parents, local authorities also have responsibilities in relation to home education. These include identifying children not receiving a suitable education as defined in section 7 of the Education Act 1996. The guidance makes clear that although local authorities have power to require parents to provide information about the education which home educated children are receiving, this is a process best conducted informally and should not amount to routine monitoring. If a local authority concludes that the education provided is not suitable, it has power to serve a school attendance order.</p><p> </p> more like this
