Pupil Exclusions

The school will make every effort to support pupils with challenging behaviour and to resolve conflict, however if it is necessary to exclude a pupil then the following procedures will be implemented:

Fixed term exclusion

Headteachers have the legal right to exclude a pupil for up to 45 school days in a school year. Exclusion is a disciplinary sanction, which can only be exercised by the Executive Headteacher or Head of School when s/he is acting in the Executive Headteacher’s absence and only in response to serious breaches of the school’s policy on behaviour or of the criminal law.

Where a pupil is excluded for a fixed period the exclusion will be for a minimum time to ensure that the pupil and others in the school understand that the behaviour has been unacceptable. Pupils will be given every opportunity to improve their behaviour before fixed term exclusion is exercised.

A first fixed period of exclusion lasting from 1 to 3 days is usually appropriate. When a pupil is excluded for a fixed period of more than two days the Headteacher will arrange for pupils to receive schoolwork to do at home and have it marked until s/he returns to school.

 

Arrangements for fixed term exclusion

  1. Fixed-term exclusions will take effect as of the close of the current school day. However, if the offense is of a very serious nature, i.e., where a pupil is a grave danger to themselves or others, then the exclusion will be immediate.
  2. The Headteacher/Deputy Head teacher will make every effort to contact parents by telephone during the day informing of the exclusion and the reasons for it. The Headteacher/Deputy Head teacher will always send a formal letter setting out the reasons for the exclusion and the arrangements for their return to school.
  3. Parents will be informed of their right to make representations to the Governing Body. In the unlikely event that it is necessary to apply the sanction of permanent exclusion, then the governing body will follow appropriate LA procedures.
