Pupil Discipline and Behaviour

Exclusion

The Board offers assistance to headteachers and governors in dealing with exclusions. The Board recognises that exclusion is normally the last resort in the disciplinary process. Schools should follow the DfE guidance on exclusions.

Pupil discipline and behaviour statement

Governing bodies must agree a statement of general principles which underpin the school's behaviour policy. Guidance on this is available from the DfE website.

The Board has produced a model discipline statement for schools to adapt for their own use.
