Fixed Term Exclusions are rarely enforced in school and are only applied in certain circumstances. The decision to impose a Fixed Term Exclusion is based upon:
A child being physically abusive towards an adult
A child being physically abusive towards a child
Threatening or overly aggressive behaviour
When we decide to enforce a Fixed Term Exclusion the following process will apply:
1. The Head Teacher will contact parents/carers and invite them into school to collect their child.
2. The Head Teacher will meet with parents/carers to discuss why the decision has been taken to use a
Fixed Term Exclusion.
3. Details of the Fixed Term Exclusion will be given to parents/carers in writing.
4. Parents/carers will then take the child excluded home and the Head Teacher will inform them when the
child is to return to school.
5. The child is not to be present in a public place during school hours without reasonable justification.
Parents/carers may be given a fixed penalty notice if they fail to do so.
6. Work will be provided for the child to complete at home.
7. Parents/carers have the right to make representations to the School Governors Discipline Committee if
they disagree with the decision to exclude. Details of how to contact the school's Chair of Governors
will be given in the letter to parents/carers.
8. A meeting date will be made between the Head Teacher and parents/carers on the day of the child's
return to school.
