Pupils can be excluded (also called being 'expelled' or 'suspended') by the Headteacher if they misbehave. The exclusion is likely to have followed a particularly serious incident or a series of incidents. There are two types of exclusion:

  • Fixed term - a child is barred from attending school for a set number of days
  • Permanent - a child has been permanently barred from attending the school

The type of exclusion and the reasons for it will be set out in a letter sent to the parent/guardian from the Headteacher.


If your child has been permanently excluded and you do not agree with the decision you have the right to appeal to an independent review panel. Contact the school to find out where to submit your request for a review.
