Today’s leaders in education face constant challenges with cost-management, pressure to deliver ever-improving results, staffing challenges, requests from parents – the list goes on. Our education law experts are on hand to help.
Our education law specialist, Polly Kerr, has a national reputation. Polly represents schools (maintained, academies and independent schools), colleges, universities, local authorities and other organisations related to education, as well as individual teachers - and at all levels from primary to further and higher education.
Polly has been a governor of a special needs school for over two years and a governor at two mainstream lower schools for over a decade. A member of the Education Law Association, Polly has an in-depth understanding of the issues facing schools and colleges in today’s complex landscape.
We support education providers through many challenging situations, including:
Polly is part of a larger litigation team and able to draw on her litigation experience when required, for example, in relation to social media and defamation.
