Rights of Children and Termination of Enrolment Contracts

A judgment of the Constitutional Court in the Pridwin Preparatory School case has clarified the manner in which an independent school should proceed when it decides whether to terminate a parent contract. The guidelines below aim to assist ISASA member schools in complying with the legal requirements.

The guidelines are provided in three documents:

  • An overview of the rights of children when a school elects to terminate an enrolment contract
  • A template of a pre-termination letter / request for representations
  • A template of a termination letter
