Exclusion from school is extremely rare at Acorns. Exclusion for an individual child would only occur if allowing the child to remain in school would seriously harm the education and welfare of another child or children or the child themselves. The decision to exclude a pupil would be taken by the Headteacher, who would review each case individually. Any pupil who is above or below compulsory school age can be excluded from school permanently or for a fixed period of days. The process of exclusion is based on the legal framework, produced by the Local Education Authority.
