(2)The appointments must be within the period for the time being specified in the order under paragraph 2(5).

(a)to present himself or herself at a place specified in the order to a person of a description specified in it;

(b)on each day, to comply with instructions given by, or under the authority of, the person in charge of the place.

(a)to participate in an activity specified in the order;

(b)on each day, to comply with instructions given by, or under the authority of, the person in charge of the activity.

(5)Where the order includes a requirement referred to in sub-paragraph (1)(c) to participate in a residential exercise, it must specify either—

(a)a place, or

(b)an activity,

in relation to the exercise.

(6)A requirement under sub-paragraph (1)(c) to participate in a residential exercise in relation to which a place is specified under sub-paragraph (5) operates to require the defaulter, in accordance with instructions given by the responsible officer—

(a)to present himself or herself at the beginning of the period specified in the order in relation to the exercise, at the place specified in it, to a person of a description specified in the instructions;

(b)to live there for that period;

(b)during that period to comply with instructions given by, or under the authority of, the person in charge of the activity.

(8)Subject to sub-paragraph (9), instructions under sub-paragraph (1)(d) relating to any particular day must require the defaulter to do either of the following—

(a)to present himself or herself to a person of a description specified in the instructions at a place specified in them;

(b)to participate in an activity specified in the instructions.

The instructions operate to require the defaulter, on that day or while participating in that activity, to comply with instructions given by, or under the authority of, the person in charge of the place or activity.

(9)If the supervision order so provides, instructions under sub-paragraph (1)(d) may require the defaulter to participate in a residential exercise for a period comprising not more than seven days, and for that purpose—

(a)to present himself or herself at the beginning of that period to a person of a description specified in the instructions at a place specified in them, and to live there for that period, or

(b)to participate for that period in an activity specified in the instructions.

(10)Instructions of the kind mentioned in sub-paragraph (9)

(a)may not be given except with the consent of a parent or guardian of the defaulter;

(11)Instructions given by, or under the authority of, a person in charge of a place under sub-paragraph (3)(b), (6)(c), (8) or (10)(b) may require the defaulter to engage in activities otherwise than at that place.

(13)A court may include an activity requirement in a supervision order or vary an activity requirement under sub-paragraph (12) only if—

(b)it is satisfied that it is feasible to secure compliance with the requirement, or the requirement as varied,

(c)it is satisfied that provision for the defaulter to participate in the activities proposed can be made under the arrangements for persons to participate in those activities which exist in the area of the youth offending team that is to be, or is, specified in the order, and

(d)in a case where the requirement, or the requirement as varied, would involve the co-operation of a person other than the defaulter and the responsible officer, that person consents to its inclusion or variation.

(14)In sub-paragraph (10) “guardian” has the same meaning as in the Children and Young Persons Act 1933.

But where a local authority has parental responsibility (within the meaning given by section 3 of the Children Act 1989) for a defaulter who—

(a)is in the authority’s care, or

(b)is provided with accommodation by the authority in the exercise of social services functions (within the meaning given by section 1A of the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970),

(a)substituting new periods for the periods specified in the order under this paragraph (subject to sub-paragraph (3));

(b)substituting a new place for the place specified in the order under this paragraph (subject to sub-paragraph (4)).

Electronic monitoring requirements

6(1)A supervision order containing a curfew requirement may also contain a requirement (an “electronic monitoring requirement”) for securing the electronic monitoring of compliance with the curfew requirement during a period—

(a)specified in the order, or

(b)determined by the responsible officer in accordance with the order.

(2)In the case referred to in sub-paragraph (1)(b), the responsible officer must, before the beginning of the period when the electronic monitoring requirement is to take effect, notify—

(a)the defaulter,

(b)the person responsible for the monitoring, and

(c)any person within sub-paragraph (3)(b),

of the time when that period is to begin.

(3)Where—

(a)it is proposed to include an electronic monitoring requirement in a supervision order, but

(b)there is a person (other than the defaulter) without whose co-operation it will not be practicable to secure that the monitoring takes place,

the requirement may not be included in the order without that person’s consent.

(4)A supervision order imposing an electronic monitoring requirement must include provision for making a person responsible for the monitoring.

(5)An electronic monitoring requirement may not be included in a supervision order unless the court making the order—

(a)has been notified by the youth offending team for the time being specified in the order that arrangements for electronic monitoring are available in the area that includes the place the court proposes to specify in the order for the purposes of the curfew requirement, and

(b)is satisfied that the necessary provision can be made under the arrangements currently available.

(6)Where a supervision order contains an electronic monitoring requirement, the court may, on the application of the original applicant or the defaulter, amend the order by substituting a new period for the period specified in the order under this paragraph.

(7)Sub-paragraph (3) applies in relation to the variation of an electronic monitoring requirement under sub-paragraph (6) as it applies in relation to the inclusion of a requirement.

“Responsible officer”

7(1)For the purposes of this Part of this Schedule, the “responsible officer”, in relation to a supervision order, means—

(a)in a case where the order imposes a curfew requirement and an electronic monitoring requirement, but does not impose an activity or supervision requirement, the person who under paragraph 6(4) is responsible for the electronic monitoring;

(b)in any other case, the member of the youth offending team for the time being specified in the order who is for the time being responsible for discharging the functions conferred by this Schedule on the responsible officer.

(2)Where a supervision order has been made, it is the duty of the responsible officer—

(a)to make any arrangements that are necessary in connection with the requirements contained in the order;

(b)to promote the defaulter’s compliance with those requirements.

(3)The responsible officer must ensure, so far as practicable, that any instructions given by the officer under a supervision order are such as to avoid the things referred to in paragraph 2(4).

(4)A defaulter in respect of whom a supervision order is made must—

(a)keep in touch with the responsible officer, in accordance with any instructions given by the responsible officer from time to time;

(b)notify the responsible officer of any change of address.

These obligations have effect as requirements of the order.

(2)If the application is made by the defaulter, the court may amend the order by substituting for the youth offending team specified in the order the youth offending team for the area referred to in sub-paragraph (1) (or, if there is more than one youth offending team for that area, whichever of them the court decides).

(3)If the application is made by the original applicant, the court must amend the order in the way mentioned in sub-paragraph (2) (subject to sub-paragraph (5)).

(4)Where a court amends the supervision order under sub-paragraph (2) or (3) but the order contains a requirement that, in the opinion of the court, cannot reasonably be complied with if the defaulter lives in the area referred to in sub-paragraph (1), the court must also amend the order by—

(a)removing that requirement, or

(b)substituting for that requirement a new requirement that can reasonably be complied with if the defaulter lives in that area.
