Facilitating Pre Court Interviews
When the decision is taken to prosecute parents for failing to ensure the regular attendance at school of their child they will be invited to attend a pre-court interview at which a PACE caution is given. This usually takes place in school. The Local Authority is currently revising its code of practice in relation to statutory duties to reflect changing roles and responsibilities. At AES we are experienced in conducting pre court interviews and giving PACE cautions. We will facilitate the interview on behalf of the school providing a comprehensive summary of our involvement in the case which will be used in evidence should the case proceed to court.
