A school had acted unlawfully in arranging and reviewing offsite educational provision for a pupil with behaviour issues.


Re: R (HA) v Governing Body of Hampstead School & Anor [2016] EWHC 278 (Admin)

The claimant challenged the decision of a school to transfer him to offsite educational provision at another college, and the failure to continue to review the decision, as required by the Education (Educational Provision for Improving Behaviour) Regulations 2010, regs 4 to 6. The court held that the school had acted unlawfully in failing to issue a notice giving reasons for the decision and in failing to review the offsite placement.

Sarah Hannett was involved in this case.
