The Act

Part 12 – Children’s hearings

Part 12 allows children’s hearings to impose electronic monitoring as a direct alternative to secure accommodation. In addition, provision is made to ensure a local authority can be held to account where it has not implemented a supervision requirement in relation to a child and where it has not provided appropriate education for children excluded from school.
