Sarah Hannett and Mark Greaves, instructed by Dan Rosenberg at Simpson Millar, are acting for a pupil who was disciplined by his school by being sent to an isolation booth for a third of the last academic year. It is argued that the school’s excessive use of isolation booths as a sanction is ultra vires and irrational.
