Permanent Exclusion Reviews

For the 2019/2020 Censuses, the DfE now collects information on Permanent Exclusion reviews including:

  • how many permanent exclusions the school assigned
  • how many permanent exclusions were overturned
  • how many permanent exclusions were upheld
  • the outcome of each exclusion review

When a child is permanently excluded, an exclusion review must be undertaken. If the exclusion is overturned, the exclusion record must be removed from the system. Now, for students who have an upheld exclusion, details of the exclusion and the exclusion review will be recorded. For students who have had an exclusion overturned, details of the exclusion will need to be removed, and only the details of the exclusion review should remain, to be reported in the Census.

Details of exclusion reviews must be recorded from Autumn 2019 and will be collected from the Spring Census 2020.

Please note, as it is the UK Government that requires this information, this feature is only available to GBR schools, and will not be visible to schools on the Isle of Man or our Interserve schools.

To read more information on this and other changes to Census, take a look at the DfE's new searchable Census manual here.

 

Adding a Permanent Exclusion Review

Exclusion reviews can be added from a student's Student Profile in the Behaviour section. Select the Exclusions tab.

Recording Reviews for upheld exclusions

If a Permanent Exclusion has been added, and the exclusion was upheld, you must record an exclusion review stating the exclusion was upheld.

Please note that there can only be one review per permanent exclusion and the outcome recorded should be the final outcome of the review (a review can consist of more than one panel meeting, but only the final one should be recorded).

Click +Add in the Reviews section to add a new review. Select the exclusion, review date and the exclusion review outcome. Leave the reinstatement date blank as the student will not be returning to the school.

Please note that the values have been provided by the DfE and so we are unable to change them.

The child's Student Profile will then show the permanent exclusion and the corresponding upheld review.

Recording Reviews for overturned exclusions

If a Permanent Exclusion has been added, and the exclusion was overturned, you must record an exclusion review stating this, and delete the original exclusion recorded from Arbor.

Click +Add in the Reviews section to add a new review. Leave the Permanent exclusion field blank as the exclusion was not upheld, add the review date, the outcome of the review and the date the student will return to the school (if they have chosen to return).

Please note that the values have been provided by the DfE and so we are unable to change them.

You must then delete the record of the original exclusion, only leaving the review information. To do this, click the exclusion, then in the slide over click Delete.

You will be asked to confirm the deletion.

The child's Student Profile will then show the record of the overturned review only.
