Exclusion process

Please see 'what happens when your child is excluded’ on the GOV.UK website.

When a head teacher excludes a pupil, they must without delay let parents know the type of exclusion and the reason(s) for it. They must also, without delay, provide parents with the following information in writing:

  • the reason(s) for the exclusion
  • the length of the exclusion
  • the parents’ right to put forward their case about the exclusion to the governing board, how they should go about doing this and how the pupil can be involved
  • when relevant, what alternative provision will be provided from the sixth day of a fixed-period exclusion.
