GW v GH [2023] EWFC 298 (B)

10th May 2024

District Judge Napier held that the best interests of the children were the first but not the only consideration in MRC 1973 s 25. The CAO had not specified ‘private’ education, and the FRC should not prioritise private education to the detriment of other emotional and physical needs of the children. The judge refused to make a school fees order to ‘encourage’ the trustees to pay school fees.
