Welcome to our website.
When our children start school, the last thing
on a parent's mind is the possibility that
they may face exclusion. However,
things can and do go wrong for children
from all walks of life, and parents can
unfortunately find themselves called to
attend a Permanent Exclusion Hearing before
members of the school's board of Governors.
Our experienced consultants can
provide insightful guidance for families
on each step of this daunting process, and will
provide honest advice on the viability
of your grounds if you are considering
appealing a permanent exclusion.
On the basis of our consultants' extensive experience
of both chairing and presenting cases before
exclusion hearings, we can advise families on
the processes for Permanent Exclusion Hearings
before a panel of Governors held in school, and
for Exclusion Appeal Hearings at the
premises of the Local Authority.
This typically will include:
Guidance on first actions upon receiving
notification of a permanent exclusion;
Rights of excluded children in law;
Thorough briefing on the Hearing process;
Intensive scrutiny of the evidence pack;
Preparation of the Statement of Case;
Guidance on selection and submission
of evidence where applicable;
Representation at the Hearing(s) if desired;
Guidance and advice post-exclusion and
preparation for appealing where families so choose.
We guarantee to provide families
with honest advice, rooted in our extensive
experience of exclusion hearings and appeals,
about the best approach to take in preparation
for the Permanent Exclusion Hearing and
whether the available evidence supports a
viable basis for appeal.
We will answer any questions you may have
about any aspect of this very difficult
experience for your family, and
will guide you every step of the way with
informed, tried-and-tested advice.
Consultancy is provided at a flat rate of
£40.00 per hour, which we believe offers
excellent value and compares extremely
favourably to the cost of legal advice.
Since every case is unique, the provision
of approximate costs is difficult but at a
broad estimate we would advise families to
anticipate between fifteen to thirty hours of
consultancy over up to three months
for a Permanent Exclusion Hearing which
is subsequently pursued to an Appeal
to the Local Authority.
