School exclusion

This page provides an introduction to school exclusion

Exclusion from school means that a pupil is not allowed in school for disciplinary reasons.

There are two types of exclusion

  • Fixed period exclusion – this means that a pupil is not allowed in school for a specified number of days because they have breached the school's behaviour policy.
  • Permanent exclusion – this means that the Head has decided that a pupil should not continue at the school because of a serious breach of the school's behaviour policy or allowing the pupil to remain in school would harm the education or welfare of the pupil or others in the school.

Follow the appropriate link below depending on the type of exclusion.
