Schools & Education Disputes

In the case of schools and other educational institutions, you may find yourself having to deal with disputes whether you are a parent, employee, or organisation. If you are a school, you will want to handle any disputes with the least amount of disruption possible, to minimise the risk to your organisation.

At Forbes Solicitors, our team of talented dispute solicitors are trained in finding the best solution for all those involved. We'll aim to keep costs as low as we can and keep any issues out of court, with extensive experience giving advice and support to both schools and parents.

When might schools and educational institutions need dispute resolution advice?

There are various situations that can call for a need of dispute resolution advice regarding schools and education systems. Our team at Forbes Solicitors has helped clients in this sector with a variety of issues, including but not limited to:

  • Admissions
  • Safeguarding
  • Student welfare (i.e., bullying, discrimination, special needs services, transport etc.)
  • Behaviour (i.e., expulsion, suspension, punishment etc.)

How long can it take?

The length of a dispute being resolved varies on the complexity of the case however, alternative methods of dispute resolution (i.e., mediation, negotiation, arbitration) are always faster than court proceedings. These are the preferred course of action and will usually lead to earlier resolution of any dispute than court proceedings.

This ranges from advising and analysing the strengths of your case, performing cost benefit analysis, organising alternative methods of dispute resolution like arbitration and mediation, as well as managing your case if it goes to court.
