When a child is permanently excluded the governors will review the head teacher’s decision within 15 school days to ensure that it is fair. If the governors uphold the decision but you still don’t believe it is fair then you can have the decision independently reviewed.
We can support you by:
During the first 5 days of an exclusion parents must ensure that their child is not in a public place during school hours.
Informal or unofficial exclusions, e.g. sending a pupil home to cool off are unlawful, regardless of whether the parent agrees to them. All exclusions must be formally recorded.
Governors must be notified without delay and review the exclusion and consider reinstating the pupil within 15 school days of being notified if:
The governors must review exclusions for fixed term exclusions more than 5 days but less than 15 days in the term within 50 school days the if the parents make representations.
The governors will be notified once per term of any other exclusions.
