Exclusions arrangements

We are an inclusive school and will work hard to develop strategies to include all children. However, in extreme cases, the school will make exclusions to maintain the health and safety of all our community.

The school endeavours to do all it can to avoid permanent exclusion. However, a permanent exclusion is for extreme and significant breaches of behaviour, for example, physically aggressive behaviour towards others in school. When such cases are considered, referral should be made to the DFE guidance and liaison with the local authority and the Trust will be undertaken.

Fixed term exclusions are for serious breaches of the school rules. Some examples are:

• refusal to follow staff direction
• stealing school property
• damaging school property
• causing injury to another person
• misconduct when representing the school off site.

If your child is excluded you will be contacted by the school and informed of the reason for exclusion, the length of the exclusion and who to contact should you need support or what to do if you want to appeal the exclusion. (Please see School Behaviour Policy – avanti.org.uk/governance)

All exclusions are reported to the local authority, Trust and the Chair of the School Stakeholder Committee.

The Deputy Principal has the authority to exclude pupils in the absence of the Principal.

Internal Exclusions

Internal exclusions will be at the discretion of Senior Leadership Team (SLT), although the Principal will be kept informed of the status of internal exclusions on a daily basis and will be in response to a culmination of behaviour incidents or extreme and serious single incident.

Internal exclusions will be decided and coordinated by a member of SLT. An internal exclusion is different to a time out/reflection in another classroom.

If a student has an internal exclusion they will be sent with appropriate work to complete supervised by a member SLT.  SLT will inform the students’s parents and record the incident and steps taken to avoid future incidents. The student will be monitored and supported by the SLT, including the SENCO, following the exclusion.

The approximate length of an internal exclusion will be no longer than 30-45min at any one time.

External exclusions will follow guidance from The Avanti Schools Trust School Behaviour policy. Only the Principal and Deputy Principal can exclude children externally. A decision to externally exclude will only be taken when all other possibilities and strategies have been exhausted, including close partnership with the parents to improve the students behaviour.

SEND

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Avanti House Primary School is a fully inclusive Hindu faith mainstream school that admits pupils from 4 years old up to 11 years. We aim to ensure that all pupils achieve their potential, personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs).

At Avanti House, we believe that all children are uniquely gifted and talented. To this end, we will encourage and support them on their journey. However, we also recognise that many students during their time at school experience difficulties which may include dyslexia, autism, low self-esteem or a more generalised learning difficulty. Whatever the student’s talents or needs, we are genuinely committed to enabling each student to grow and develop to reach their full potential.

What to do if you have a concern about your child

If your child is already at the school, the first point of call should be the child’s class teacher who can liaise with the SENCo for you. Where external agencies are involved, the SENCo may be better placed to help and will be happy to do so. The class teacher can be available for quick updates each day but where more time is needed, an appointment can be made with the SENCo. If you are unable to see the class teacher before or after school, contact the school via the email or phone numbers below.

We can help with:

  • Supporting your child’s learning
  • Encouraging independence
  • Boosting confidence/self-esteem
  • Establishing positive behaviour strategies

Please contact us and we can work together to resolve any issues which may be worrying you or your child. To make an appointment please contact:

Ms Ann Luth (SENCo)    [email protected]

Mr Dravit Koorichh (Interim Co-Principal) [email protected]

Phone: 0208 249 6831
