has partially succeeded in getting the school's decision overturned, BBC
Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.
Clitheroe Royal Grammar school was wrong to ban Tom White from a water
sports trip to France. But the school can refuse to allow him on trips that
are connected with his formal education, because disability rights law will
not apply to education until this autumn, Today reported.
John Dunford of the Secondary Heads Association said the case illustrates
the unresolved problems of balancing pupils' rights with the
responsibilities of schools to protect them.
