New role for ed­u­ca­tion boss

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Remember When? -

ONE of Kent’s long­est-serv­ing ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cers is to be­come the new chief schools ad­ju­di­ca­tor.

Dr Ian Craig, cur­rently the county coun­cil’s in­terim di­rec­tor of chil­dren’s ser­vices, will take up the na­tional post in April next year. He has spent four decades work­ing in Kent schools and in dif­fer­ent posts for the county coun­cil.

The of­fice of the schools ad­ju­di­ca­tor en­sures that schools are fol­low­ing Gov­ern­ment rules on ad­mis­sions, as well as rul­ing on dis­putes over ad­mis­sions poli­cies. It also ar­bi­trates where there are dis­agree­ments over school clo­sures.

Dr Craig, who has worked for Kent County Coun­cil since 1989, will not be al­lowed to be­come in­volved in any ad­mis­sions dis­putes or chal­lenges in­volv­ing Kent schools.
