What is an exclusion?
A disciplinary measure that the Head Teacher uses to deal with unacceptable behaviour. There are three types of exclusion
Lunchtime - your child may be excluded from school premises for the lunch time period. This can only be for a set length of time (e.g. one week) If your child qualifies for free school meals, he/she is still entitled to receive a meal if they are excluded at lunch time.
Fixed term - your child may be excluded for a specified number of days (maximum 45 days in any one school year). You will be given a date when the pupil will return to school and cannot go back to school until that date.
Permanent – your child may never return to school unless you challenge the exclusion and an appeal panel overturns the decision to permanently exclude your child.
