We can provide legal advice and representation at school exclusion panels.
We believe that “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”- Malcolm x.
With this we believe every child deserves a future and deserves to be in education. We want young people to be empowered through learning. Currently Schools exclusions disproportionately affect the Black British community. Many members of the Black British community live in the most deprived areas of London, there is no legal aid for Education Law thus paying for a solicitor is unattainable.
With this in mind we have made our Education advocacy service that is free to ensure that those who are the most vulnerable in society still have scope to accessing justice.
We are providing advocates that can represent your child at fixed and Permeant schools exclusions hearings for free.
Parents may feel apprehensive when asked to attend appeals and meetings alone. Our advocates will support you at these and other school-based meetings such as reintegration.
When possible our advocates will meet with both you and your child in person ahead of such meetings in order to be fully prepared.
When you contact us we will ask you some background questions to find out if our legal advisors have capacity and they will in turn prepare and conducts the appeal on your behalf before the Head Teacher or the schools Governing Board or before the Independent Review Panel (IRP)
We have legal advisors tailored and committed to understanding the African and Afro- Caribbean community and experience.
Our legal Advisors specialise in
