Education Administration in UK Law

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

  • Watt v Kesteven County Council
    • Court of Appeal
    • 07 fév. 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.

  • L v J
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 24 juil. 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.

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

  • Carty v Croydon London Borough Council
    • Queen's Bench Division
    • 13 fév. 2004

    It seems to me, having considered the broad picture of the period spent by the claimant at Cyril Burt, as well as the available detail, that the defendants are not shown to have been negligent. On the contrary, they are shown to have approached the claimant's case throughout in a manner which would be regarded as acceptable by a significant body of educational opinion.

  • MH, R v Special Educational Needs & Disability Tribunal and Another
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 juin 2004

    Under the paragraph 3 process, parents have a qualified right to insist on their preference for a particular school. The right is qualified by paragraph 3(3) (a) and (b), in that if any of the conditions in those subparagraphs is met, the local education authority is not bound to specify the name of that school in Part 4 of the statement (although there is nothing in paragraph 3 which expressly prevents it from doing so) .

  • R G" (by his father & litigation friend"
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 30 jan. 2004

    If suitable education has been made available which is reasonably practicable, but for one reason or another the child is not taking advantage of it, the local authority may well be in breach of duty in failing to exercise its powers to ensure that the child receives that education.
