Exclusions in schools in Wales - Ensuring compliance with disability legislation

Monday July 8th, 2019 - Cardiff

Making the decision to exclude a student, whether it be for a fixed-term or permanent, is a significant call by a headteacher and ensuring that it is lawful is vital. When this exclusion is then put before the governing body disciplinary committee or an Independent Appeals Panel, the decision will be scrutinised. Demonstrating that the decision maker has received legal training in administering exclusions is a powerful tool, that also reduces the chances of making unlawful decisions.

 Our presenter is a practising solicitor who has acquired a wealth of experience in the law of education whilst practising within the Legal Services departments of several English local authorities. He also regularly delivers training courses on various education-law related topics to local government officers, education professionals, school governors and admission appeal and exclusion review panel members and clerks across England and Wales.
