The school will not use either fixed term or permanent exclusion lightly. They must be regarded as the most serious sanction available.
The school will use fixed term exclusion for:
– swearing at a member of staff
– physical assault on a member of staff or a student
– persistent failure to comply with school rules
– any behaviour(s)/ actions which put other students at risk
The school is mindful of the “six day‟ rule – and understands that any length of exclusion over 5 days will necessitate making provision for the student to be educated and 1 day for LAC. Only the Headteacher can exclude a pupil from the school. Permanent exclusions will be avoided by “managed moves‟ where ever possible. However, on some occasions it will be necessary to permanently exclude a student from the school.
