Local Government analysis: Mark Blois, partner and head of education, and Philip Wood, solicitor, at Browne Jacobson LLP, consider the case HM Chief Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills v Interim Executive Board of Al-Hijrah School. The Association of Muslim Schools applied for joinder to the Al-Hijrah appeal. Their application was rejected by the Court of Appeal on the basis that it was received after the judgment had been handed down despite the Association being fully aware of the proceedings and therefore able to apply for joinder at an earlier stage. The court also noted that Al-Hijrah and Birmingham City Council had the means to appeal if they had wanted to but had chosen to accept the court’s judgment and agreed to work together to implement the decision.
