With the new Exclusion Code being implemented in September 2012, changes are afoot in regard to Governors and School Discipline.
It is now clear that the Governor’s Discipline Committee will be the final stage of parental appeals against Heads’ decisions in many cases. It is therefore vital that you get this stage right: under the old system any flaws at this stage could be remedied by an Independent Panel, but this is no longer the case. This will only leave Judicial Review, which can easily run to thousands of pounds, and an innocent procedural error could be very costly.
This course examines the regulations that underpin the governors’ deliberations, best practice for managing the whole process and an examination of necessary time limits, documentation and correspondence.
About our School Discipline Training for Governors
The day delegate rate is £180 for the first delegate, any additional delegates from the same organisation are charged at £150 per place. This includes the documentation pack and refreshments throughout the day, including lunch.
The course can be delivered in school, or to a group of schools which may be more cost effective. School Discipline training course groups are kept to a maximum of 12 delegates and in school courses cost £600 per day, or £795 plus VAT for up to 15 delegates. For this charge, the school provides the venue and prepares the course documentation. No refreshments are included in this cost.
The above costs are exclusive of VAT.
