Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is Peter, I’ve been asked to look at this for you, thank you for your patience.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I have located the complaints procedure for via the college's website - see the link here:
I cannot find a behaviour policy directly but there is a link towards the end of this document here for you: https://www.coleggwent.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Coleg-Gwent-Student-Charter-2019-2021-en.pdf
I hope this assists?
I can't write a statement for you as part of the service we offer here, but you have two approaches - one is to be non-confrontational and hopefully appeal to their good nature - focussing on the fact that this was a silly episode of two boys messing around, no harm done, both clear there was no malicious intent, and that no further action needs to be taken. Your son could write an apology stating how he realises that his actions were thoughtless and could have caused harm, but that they were both messing around and no harm was intended.
The second approach is to go through the complaints policy and highlight everything they have not done correctly in simply excluding him and taking this to panel without any of the other steps that should have taken place first.
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
In the meantime, if you could take a second to provide a 5 star rating (at the top right of your screen), I'll be credited for my time spent responding to your question.
You should be able to click "accept" for the answer then the stars will appear - I think. Thank you!
