We represented our client whose daughter was excluded from an independent school, following an incident concerning substance abuse. Our client’s daughter was otherwise a good student, achieving well, though she had recently been diagnosed with ADHD. The incident leading to the exclusion took place after the diagnosis. Our client approached us in order to seek assistance in relation to the issue of fees and that the school provide the opportunity for our client to withdraw her daughter as oppose to be excluded to assist to find a place at another school. We wrote to the Head Teacher with a detailed and amicable letter addressing our client’s points. The Head Teacher instructed the school’s Legal Team and thereafter accepted our position and allowed our client to withdraw her daughter from the school. The exclusion does not appear on her record. Our client’s daughter is now attending a new school and her studies are going well.
