Government tightens school exclusion guidance to clear up ‘confusion’

The Tes reports that consultation comes two years after government withdrew new guidance just weeks after it was published.

The government has outlined plans to tighten guidance to schools on excluding and expelling pupils.

The proposed changes, which are due to come into effect in September 2017, come two years after ministers had to drop new guidance, weeks after it was issued, “to address some issues with process”.

At the time, the DfE said it would issue updated guidance “in due course”.

The government has also issued new documents for headteachers and parents about the exclusion system.
