Regina (LG) v Independent Appeal Panel for Tom Hood School (Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, interested party) – WLR Daily

Regina (LG) v Independent Appeal Panel for Tom Hood School (Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, interested party) [2010] EWCA Civ 142; [2010] WLR (D) 56

“A decision on the balance of probabilities that a school pupil had produced a knife during a fight was sufficient to found his permanent exclusion from the school. It did not infringe his right to a fair hearing before the decision-maker under art 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, since he had no arguable right under domestic law to continue to be educated at the school without good reason, and thus had no ‘civil right’ to do so. The appeal panel was not determining a criminal charge against the pupil: the sanction of permanent exclusion from a particular school was insufficiently severe to render the charge against him criminal.”
