Exclusion Arrangements


Exclusions at Cedars Academy are extremely rare.  We have a strong ethos around support and structure for vulnerable children.  If any exclusions are necessary, our policy gives detailed guidance and information.  However, the following is a quick guide: 

1.    A pupil who is excluded will be given a structure of work and support for the time they would be aware from the school site. 
2.    Parents and carers are informed verbally and in writing the reason for the exclusion and invited to a back to school interview to integrate the young person with their peers. 
3.    The Local Authority is informed of exclusions and as all pupils at Cedars Academy have an Education Health Care Plan or Statement of Special Educational Needs, the Local Authority monitor and support exclusions. 
4.    If a challenge is made to an exclusion the Academy’s Exclusions Policy is adhered to and the Trustees would be notified of the challenge.
