Supervision Order in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Re A (Supervision Order: Extension)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 10 Nov 1994

    There is no direct guidance in the Act on the criteria to be applied on the hearing of an extension application. One has to stand back and look at the purpose of the extension of the supervision order. In previous legislation the supervision order might run for a period up to 3 years. The effect is to give the court the power to grant extensions after one year but not exceeding 3 years.

    If s31 was to be imported into an application to extend an existing supervision order there would be no purpose to the specific provision in schedule 3 Part II paragraph 6. At the expiry of the one year period the local authority or other supervisor would be required to make a fresh application under s31.

  • Re O (Supervision Order)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 15 Jan 2001

    Secondly, it gives the local authority parental responsibility for the child coupled with the power to control the parents' exercise of that responsibility. Again, the care plan does not suggest that the local authority wish to exercise parental responsibility or control the parents' exercise of it. This is not indicative of the suggestion that the local authority need to be in a position to arrange that for him.

    It will be the duty of everyone to ensure that, in those cases where a supervision order is proportionate as a response to the risk presented, a supervision order can be made to work, as indeed the framers of the Children Act always hoped that it would be made to work. The local authorities must deliver the services that are needed and must secure that other agencies, including the health service, also plays their part, and the parents must co-operate fully.

  • Re T (A Minor) (Care or Supervision Order)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 21 Jun 1993

    The nature of a Supervision Order is to help and assist a child where the parents have full responsibility for the care and upbringing. It does not involve any statutory level of monitoring and it does not give the local authority parental responsibility. Any conditions attached to a Supervision Order cannot in themselves be enforced by the Court.

  • Re P (Placement Orders: Parental Consent)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 20 May 2008

    A child's circumstances may “require” statutory intervention, perhaps may even “require” the indefinite or long-term removal of the child from the family and his or her placement with strangers, but that is not to say that the same circumstances will necessarily “require” that the child be adopted.

  • Osenton (Charles) & Company v Johnston
    • House of Lords
    • 09 May 1941

    In other words, appellate authorities ought not to reverse the Order merely because they would themselves have exercised the original discretion, had it attached to them, in a different way. But if the appellate tribunal reaches the clear conclusion that there has been a wrongful exercise of discretion in that no weight, or no sufficient weight, has been given to relevant considerations such as those urged before us by the Appellant, then the reversal of the Order on appeal may be justified.
