We are testing a new site
We are redesigning and improving the Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council website, this is why these new pages are different.
‘Informal’ or ‘unofficial’ exclusions, such as sending pupils home ‘to cool off’, are not allowed, even if they are with the agreement of parents.
A school cannot ask you to collect your child or send your child home early without following the formal exclusions process.
Any exclusion of a pupil, even for short periods of time, must follow the formal process including being formally recorded.
Any fixed-period exclusion must have a stated end date.
