Pupil exclusions

Pupil exclusion is a disciplinary measure which the Head Teacher uses to deal with unacceptable behaviour.

There are two types of exclusion:

  • Fixed-term exclusion -  this is for a specified number of days (maximum 45 days in any one school year) or lunchtimes (a lunchtime exclusion is equivalent to a one half day fixed period exclusion). You will be given a date when the pupil may return and they cannot go back to school until that date.
  • Permanent exclusion - the school feels the pupil should not return

For more information see the exclusions statutory guidance.
