Sometimes pupils, for a variety of reasons, behave in ways which disrupt, offend or cause distress to others, both pupils and staff.

As a last resort, Head Teachers may use exclusion from school as a means to try to resolve the difficulties which may have arisen.

The Headteacher can permanently exclude for a serious breach of school discipline when it is not intended that the pupil should return to the same school.

Permanent exclusion can be for a number of incidents or for a one-off incident.

The Head Teacher is required to notify Parents/Carers, Local Authority and the School Governors if a pupil is permanently excluded.

All supporting materials relating to exclusion, can be found in our resources area.
