Exclusion guidance 2017

Closed 25 Apr 2017

Opened 14 Mar 2017


We are seeking views on revisions we are proposing to make to the statutory guidance on the exclusion of pupils. We have made changes in a small number of areas to make the rules that apply to exclusions and the process of review clearer.

We would like to hear your thoughts on the revisions we have made including two non- statutory annexes.
