Suspension and exclusion letter templates.

The letter templates have been amended to reflect DfE changes that came into effect from 1 September 2023 and relate to new exclusions that occur from that date onwards.

The letters are relevant for suspensions and exclusions from:

  • maintained schools
  • academy schools
  • free schools
  • studio schools
  • alternative provision academies
  • pupil referral units

The term headteacher applies equally to the teacher in charge of pupil referral units and principals of academies.

The term governing board applies equally to management committees of pupil referral units and the academy trusts of academies.
