school with empty chair

It should be noted that the Local Authority has no role in exclusions from schools that have converted to Academies.  Academies must make their own arrangements for any hearing by School Governors and for any independent appeal against the School Governors decision.  However, parents/carers can still access support from the SEND Partnership Service.

Fomal exclusion from school can have a big impact on young people and their families.

Information and advice on exclusion is available from: 

 Advice for parents on what to do if their children have been excluded is available from:

  • The Advisory Centre for Education
    • General Advice Line:               0809 800 5793
    • Exclusion Advice line:             0808 800 0327
    • Exclusion Information Line:      020 7704 9822 (24 hour answer phone)  

The SEND Partnership Service offers impartial and confidential support to the parents of children and young people aged 0-19 when a child or young person has either been permanently excluded or fixed term excluded sufficiently to be called to a Governor's meeting.

The SEND Partnership Service can be contacted by telephone on: 01225 394382
