R (on the application of LB, a minor, by her litigation friend SB) v Independent Appeal Panel of Newport City Council

Education – Pupil. The defendant Independent Appeal Panel had not clearly made a finding that the claimant had used or threatened serious violence when it had upheld her permanent exclusion from a school and it was required to reconsider the case. The Administrative Court further held that the defendant had relied, wrongly, on its view that the school had fulfilled its duty to consider alternative solutions.
