In partnership with Mason Hayes & Curran, and its team of leading lawyers in education, JMB was hosting a one-day seminar on legal matters that impact daily on schools. This was an opportunity not to be missed in ensuring that you have the latest advice and updates.

This year we focused on three main topics which are of current concern to many schools:

  • Custody and Guardianship Disputes: Conflict between separated parents/ legal guardians and the implications for schools, including admissions/enrolment disputes, access to school reports/exam results, attendance at meetings etc. Consent, change of name. Rights of student both under and over 18
  • Social Media Issues: Information on preparing social media policies. Circulation of images/bullying/harassment. Inappropriate use of social media including emails by staff/reputational damage.
  • Suspension and Expulsion: Getting it right; fair procedures: investigation/questioning pupils/rights of the pupil and parents/guardians, pitfalls to avoid.

Each topic concluded with a question and answer session.
