The increasingly popular academies programme means that many schools now have greater freedom and autonomy in the way their school is operated.
Decision making is likely to be quicker and more efficient and education services can be delivered in a way that the school considers to be most appropriate for its pupils.
However, with independence comes accountability and increased responsibilities, so it is essential that school leaders have experienced solicitors on hand to be able to provide specialist legal advice when it’s needed.
This could include matters such as how best to formulate it’s admissions policy, the correct way to manage an employment dispute or how to address property maintenance issues, including the sale and purchase of school land.
