Suspension and Exclusion Information
At Grange Park, we are keen to avoid suspensions and exclusions wherever possible. However, a child will be suspended or excluded from lessons or school when he/she has breached the school’s behaviour for learning policy seriously or persistently. This is a serious sanction and will be considered in light of the conduct in question and by taking into account the school’s policy.
When deciding whether to suspend or exclude a pupil, the headteacher considers the school’s responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010.
On suspending a pupil, the headteacher will notify parents/carers of the period of the suspension and the reasons for it.
In the case of fixed–term suspensions, the headteacher will also inform parents/carers of their right to make representations about the suspension to the Local Board of Governors.
During the suspension the pupil is expected to be at home. Parents/carers are required to attend a reintegration meeting following the suspension prior to the pupil’s return to lessons.
