From a public schools perspective, one of the most concerning orders of the Supreme Court of Appeal in the landmark case of Head of Department Western Cape Education Department and Others v S (1209/2016)  ZASCA 187 (13 December 2017), was that: “It is declared that in processing and dealing with the applicant’s applications for a fee exemption in 2011, 2012 and 2013, the school and its governing body subjected her to repeated violations of her constitutional and statutory rights.” This order should ring alarm bells with public schools and no school would want to find itself subject to such a court order. So, what is the solution to your school avoiding this situation? We have found notwithstanding training - in numerous instances of important terms and conditions were being left off admission documents, other documents were confusing and non-complian and exemptions not being dealt with correctly, as well as other omissions and mistakes.
