Children's hearing system: secondary teaching pack

These materials are intended to support teachers and pupils through their learning about the Children’s Hearings system. In preparing these, the aim has been to provide materials for use in the classroom within the PSE, Citizenship and Modern Studies curricula which will provide accurate information about the Hearings system and help pupils to gain a better understanding of the key issues. These include the ethos and principles of the Children’s Hearings system; the legal framework; why children and young people are referred to the Hearings system; what happens at a Hearing; the decisions that a Hearing can make and what they mean; and the roles of the different people involved in the Hearings system.
