new term, new exclusions framework

5 September 2012
As from the start of the term in September 2012, any decision taken by a school to exclude a pupil will fall under the new exclusions framework and could, in the case of a permanent exclusion, result in a hearing before the new constituted independent review panels. Schools need to be aware of the new guidance which has been issued by the Department for Education and ensure they act with due regard to the guidance to ensure they do not fall foul of claims that the school’s decision making was flawed in terms of judicial review principles. Local authorities and academies will also need to ensure their panel members are trained on the operation of the new regime in order to ensure that all concerned in the process have access to a straightforward process which fairly deals with the competing needs of excluded pupils and the rest of the school community.
