Usually, headteachers can exclude your grandchild if they misbehave in or outside school. However, only disciplinary grounds may be used to exclude a student. The decision on whether to exclude is for a head teacher to take. Your grandchild should be given an opportunity to present his case before a decision is made. The decision to exclude must be:
You will get a letter from the school telling you what to do if you disagree with the exclusion. You can ask the school’s governing body to overturn the exclusion if either: your child has been excluded for more than 5 days or the exclusion means they’ll miss a public exam or national curriculum test. If the exclusion is for 5 days or fewer, you can still ask the governors to hear your views but they can’t overturn the headteacher’s decision.
Is there anything else I can help with today?
In that case, you should challenge its exclusion especially since your grandchild was not given an opportunity to present his case. You should then ask the school’s governing body to overturn the exclusion.
