Course: Get it right - avoiding exclusion pitfalls
17 Jan
An exciting opportunity available to Governors, Headteachers and senior leader teams to have outstanding input from one of the country’s top barristers on the thorny issue of exclusions - with a focus on getting it right and avoiding the pitfalls especially of permanent exclusions. Whilst a rare matter in schools, what we don’t know we don’t know catches school leaders including governors out and makes the issue so much more challenging for all including the child and the family. The course has been created jointly by NAHT (Medway), MELA and MASH and funded though Schools Forum. Please view the attachment for further details and booking information.
