RES 4227 - Education Appeal Panel Member Allowance (Table 1 Paragraph 4(d)) (Part A)

Service: Resources

Ref no.: RES 4227

Decision Maker: Head of Legal and Democratic Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved


To introduce a nominal payment for School Appeals Panel members of £30 for full day and £15 for each half day of appeals, whilst they are being held remotely.  Payments will be made with immediate effect to existing panel members and backdated to the start of this year’s appeals, and once the new members become part of a panel (having completed training) they will receive the same allowances.


Should panels return to be held in person, it is proposed that previous arrangements apply, i.e. whereby panel members are able to claim for travelling and subsistence.


Request that future reviews of the allowances for School Appeals Panel members conducting appeals for community and voluntary controlled schools be considered by the Council’s Independent Remuneration Panel as provided for in the Local Authorities (Members Allowances) Regulations 2003.
