Abstract

Although fulfilling a public function, schools are private places. The public has no automatic right of entry. Parents of enrolled pupils have an ‘implied licence’ to come onto the school premises at certain stated times. It is for schools to define and set out the extent of such access. Parents exceeding this would be trespassing.
