Exclusion Arrangements

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
– bullying

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.
