School Placings And Exclusions Appeal Committee


The School Placings and Exclusions Appeal Committee (SPEAC) considers appeals lodged by parents of a child under school leaving age (16), or a young person who is over that age.

The Committee’s remit is to consider appeals against:

  • Exclusion from School; and
  • Refusal of a placing request

An appeal committee set up under section 28 D(1) of the Education (Scotland) Act 1980 shall be constituted in accordance with Schedule A1.

Membership shall consist of 3, 5 or 7 members nominated by the authority from among persons appointed by the authority under Schedule A1; and sufficient persons may be appointed to enable 2 or more appeal committees to sit at the same time.
