  • Overview

    Thomson Snell & Passmore assisted an independent school and long-standing client when the mother of an expelled pupil alleged that her son had been treated less favourably due to his nationality. The mother and son also made a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) under the Data Protection Act.

    Having extensive experience in the Education sector, the firm advised on the school and governors appeal panel process, and this included advising on the necessary documentation and factors to assess within the process.

    The entirety of the Employment team at Thomson Snell & Passmore participated in responding to the DSAR.

    The department advised on the obligations in respect of the DSAR, including the searches to be made. The department further assisted by dealing with items that contained a third party’s data, redacting and reviewing the documents to be sent, and highlighting any documents that could undermine the school’s decision to expel.

    The governors appeal panel upheld the expulsion, and just fewer than 250 documents were sent to the boy’s mother in response to her DSAR.

    Our work in this matter helped our long standing client to demonstrate the lengths it had gone to in order ensure a fair and just process was followed in respect of the expulsion, therefore painting the school and its processes in a positive light.
