Exclusion from school

Exclusions from school is a consequence for certain behaviours and is a sanction that we use only rarely.  It is one of the most serious sanctions and if a child is excluded they will be provided with work to do for the period of their exclusion.  A fixed term exclusion is used for a serious breach of our behaviour policy or repeated breaches of our policy.  Should it be necessary to exclude a child from school we will work alongside their family to do all we can to prevent a recurrence.  Part of this process is a re-integration interview, usually with the the Headteacher, before the child returns to school.  Any exclusion from school would be in line with the latest Department for Education (DfE) guidance which can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-exclusion
