Course description

The course will soon be updated to reflect the 2017 updated statutory guidance, but they are very minor updates which simply give greater clarification.

To quote the new guidance 'the legislation governing the exclusion process remains unchanged. This statutory guidance has been updated in a small number of areas, in particular, to provide greater confidence to Head Teachers on their use of exclusion and to provide greater clarity to independent review panels and governing bodies on their consideration of exclusion decisions'.

Even without this extra clarification, the information in the course is still accurate.

This five module course delivers five CPD hours and comprehensively covers:

  • the national statistics on exclusions
  • the exclusions process and appeals, who has the power to exclude, and the different types of exclusion
  • the head teacher's decision to exclude
  • the governing body's duty to consider exclusions 
  • The Independent Review Panel and Special Educational Needs Expert
  • a summary of law and guidance including the major changes.
