Exclusion of a pupil from school is a serious and critical step. The Multi Academy Trust has a right to exclude a pupil from school, if circumstances require such action. The exclusion can be temporary for a fixed period, indefinite or permanent. It is only the CEO or Hub Lead who can take this decision in collaboration with the Head of School. Advice may be sought from directors, the Education Officer, the Education Welfare Service, County Psychological Service, or the School Medical Officer. The parent / guardian will be fully informed about the circumstances leading to the taking of such action.
