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.
