Exclusion Information for Parents & Carers

There are a range of services available that can provide you with advice and information on the prevention of school exclusion and what happens if a fixed-period or permanent exclusion is issued.

A Graduated Response – Preventing Exclusion document has been developed by the Sutton Local Area which details aims and principles, as well as a range of interventions and support available, which may be used in the prevention of exclusion, and to provide early help and support.

If your child has received an exclusion A Guide To Permanent Exclusions booklet provides you with useful information about what happens next.
