Schools & Colleges

Educational institutions face huge challenges meeting the demands of statute and codes of practice.  Our experienced team of barristers accept instructions from parents, local authorities and school governing bodies, both from the maintained and independent sectors.  Many members of the team are governors as well as active parents.

We deliver swift and experienced advice and representation in the following areas:

  • Teacher misconduct, competence and sickness
  • School Governance, and governor/staff conflict
  • Head Teacher management
  • Redundancy management
  • Admissions and Admission number alteration
  • Exclusions
  • Special Educational Needs and negotiations as to funding and provision
  • Health and Safety

Kenworthy's Chambers are committed to providing a one-stop shop of legal services and advocacy for schools and colleges.  We have a wealth of experience in safeguarding and managing of allegations by pupils or former pupils against members of staff.  

We can review and amend policies and practices to incorporate recent legislative changes in respect for instance of powers of search or the power to exclude a pupil.

We will deploy excellent advocates at the First Tier Tribunal as well as providing early advice directly to leaders within the school to ensure speedy resolutions and prevent escalation.
