The aim of this policy is to ensure that the school offers a safe, positive and caring environment in which all children have the opportunity to achieve to the very highest of standards.

In some rare circumstances, we may need to exclude a pupil. A pupil can be excluded for a variety of reasons however usually this is because their behaviour has been unacceptable and they need some time out of school. Exclusions can take effect immediately and the Headteacher decides if this is a fixed period exclusion or a permanent exclusion. Following an exclusion of any period, a reintegration meeting is arranged between pupil, parent and members of school staff. We are currently trialing a new format for our reintegration meetings, details of which can be found below.
