Education Administration in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Gilham v Kent County Council (No. 2)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 01 November 1984

    Now whether or not an employer has behaved reasonably in dismissing an employee is a question of fact, and it is a question upon which different people, looking at the same set of circumstances, may reasonably come to different conclusions. If we were to take this course, it would have the very undesirable effect of encouraging innumerable appeals which raised no point of law, but depended upon comparative findings of fact.

  • Carty v Croydon London Borough Council
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 27 January 2005

    The question whether there can be a common law duty of care where there is no private law right to claim damages for breach of statutory duty does not admit of a blanket answer. There may be aspects of the role of an education officer which involve consultation or advice in respect of policy matters. It may be that, in respect of decisions taken in the performance of this part of an education officer's role, his or her activities would be non-justiciable.

  • Fraser v Canterbury Diocesan Board of Finance (No 2)
    • House of Lords
    • 27 October 2005

    All these considerations suggest that the court should take a broad and practical approach to the question whether a school has (in the words of the third proviso) ceased "to be used for the purposes in this Act mentioned" (and that it is not simply a coincidence that all the reported cases are concerned with schools which had closed permanently).

  • L v J
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 24 July 2001

    Like Henriques J, I consider that Richards J's approach to the sense to be given to "reinstatement" in the Act of 1998 is correct. The reality is that once he is reinstated, his exclusion is cancelled, and he is to be treated like any other pupil; and in respect of any pupil, special or particular measures or initiatives may be required at any time.

  • (1) Simon Richard Fraser (2) Nathan George Fraser v (1) Canterbury Diocesan Board of Finance (2) Integrated Services Programme
    • Chancery Division
    • 06 July 2007

    The effect of the third proviso was, so far as material as follows. First, the grantees of the land (the trustees of the school) did not acquire a fee simple absolute in the land but a determinable fee, that is to say an interest which would determine automatically on the reverter being triggered. Second, so long as the reverter had not been triggered, the grantor retained what was technically known as a “possibility of reverter”.

  • Watt v Kesteven County Council
    • Court of Appeal
    • 07 February 1955

    Finally, the point remains whether the breach of the obligation imposed by section 76 enables a parent who has suffered injury to bring a civil action. To do so would be to fly in the face of authority and in particular in the face of the decision in the Gatesheadcase vide spurs, a decision of this Court.

  • Slough Borough Council v Special Educational Needs Tribunal and Another
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 15 June 2010

    Every element of a maintained school carries a cost in public funds. The recurrent exercise for Tribunals is to calculate what it is, because it is ordinarily only with such a calculation that the protection of public money to which the condition in s.9 is directed becomes possible. If it were not so, a like-for-like comparison between public and private provision could never be made.
