Exclusions – Help When You Need It
When making the decision to exclude a pupil from school your school will be expected to comply with the rules and regulations set out in the Education Act 2002, including the changes introduced in September 2017.
Here at J A Walker’s we provide guidance and training to support school heads, staff, governors and other decision makers.
We can ensure that the procedure complies with the regulations so that you avoid time-consuming errors or having to attend a judicial review in the High Court.
We provide an advice and consultancy service which includes exclusion, discipline and behaviour at school. It’s a cost-effective way to receive expert help when you need it. The service includes:
- Behavioural and Exclusion Policy review
- Advice at the point of exclusion and beyond
- Support to manage the exclusion process
- Clerking panels
If you want exclusion training in order to gain knowledge about the processes and powers of the Independent Review Panel, we can help. The course includes topics such as:
- DfE guidance on school discipline and pupil-behaviour policies
- The importance of in-school policies and how they are followed
- The process of investigation
- The powers of the IRP
- Pitfalls and bear traps
- Practical case studies
Our training course has been designed to guide and inform everyone involved in the exclusion process, so that decisions can be made with confidence and authority.
