Reminder: Please sign Student Planners! One of the easiest ways of keeping in touch with your child’s progress is to make sure that you have signed their planner. You can leave notes in the planner if you wish to communicate with your child’s tutor or subject teachers and keep an eye on how much homework  is being set.

We monitor our student’s planners every week and, when we see your signature, we know that we are supporting each other with your child’s education.

Exclusions Policy

This policy has been updated to reflect the guidance introduced by the DfE in 2012.

Independent Appeal Panels no longer exist and have been replaced by Independent Review Panels (IRPs). There is no longer a right for IRPs to reinstate a pupil, but if the decision of governors to uphold a permanent exclusion is quashed by the IRP and the pupil is not reinstated by governors there is a financial penalty.

There is new emphasis in the guidance on the principles of natural justice and the lack of discrimination in exclusion decisions.

This policy outlines the principles and process our academy follows when it comes to exclusions:
