Exclusions

There are two types of exclusion: fixed term and permanent.

There is a limit of 45 school days in a school year for fixed term exclusions.

Permanent exclusions and any fixed term exclusions which result in the pupil being excluded for more than 15 school days (singly or cumulatively) in a term must be reported immediately to Ark Schools who will inform governors and arrange the required governors review meetings.

Any exclusion that would mean the pupil missing a public exam must also be immediately reported to ARK Schools who will inform governors and arrange the required governors review meetings.

All other exclusions must be recorded on the MIS in a timely manner and reported to governors in the Principal’s Report.
