The content of these letters has been modified to account for changes outlined in the new 2017 DfE exclusion guidance. By using these standard letters schools can be assured that they are providing consistent advice and information for parents on the next steps for their child.
The letters are relevant for exclusions from:
The term head teacher 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.
Information to assist schools and support centres in reporting permanent and fixed term pupil exclusions to the authority using the system introduced last year, to ensure that information is transferred securely and that statutory timescales are met.
The Inclusion Pathways Team works countywide to support and provide education for children and young people when they are out of school due to reasons of exclusion, being at risk of exclusion, or as a result of their medical needs.
A managed move is the transfer of a pupil to another school on a trial basis, when the pupil is at risk of permanent exclusion and their behaviour is causing serious concerns.
Guidance about children who cannot attend school due to long term health needs.
The Department for Education (DfE) collates both fixed period and permanent exclusion data from every local authority (LA).
