End of year celebrations are normally held to allow student s to celebrate what they have achieved that past year etc. These are optional functions and the school / college is under no obligation to allow students to attend. They can restrict access and stop those who's behaviour during the year has been poor. The school s usually take an approach of why reward bad behaviour. The students concerned are responsible for their actions.
If there is a school policy regarding this and the school has failed to follow the policy, then you would need to complain officially to the head and then the school governors.
However, at best all that may achieve is an apology nothing more.
If the even has taken place,thebn other more can be done.
Your son should then focus ready for year 12 and improve his behaviour so that he can attend the end year graduation at the end of year 12.
If the revision sessions are part of the term time table then he should be allowed to attend unless excluded.
You should ask the head to put this in writing as if your son is not allowed to attend revision lessons then how is he not excluded? Say you need their written reply and justification so that yo can take legal advice and lodge a formal complain.
Is the revision sessions part of the normal school timetable, or is it extra which the school is providing? Agin if extra and not part of normal school sessions or lesson then it is optional.
Again ask the head in what way and under what condition is this not an exclusion.
It has been a hard year around, especially for the youngsters. You would think the school would cut a bit of slack.
