The DfE refers to Fixed Period Exclusions as 'suspensions'. We won’t be changing the terminology in Arbor, but censuses display both names so you can make sure you’re submitting the correct data. Fixed Period Exclusions in Arbor are migrated from the Suspensions area in your previous system.
- We migrate timetabled exclusion sessions, and Internal, Permanent and Fixed Period exclusions logged for students from SIMS, Bromcom and RM Integris.
- We migrate Permanent and Fixed Period exclusions logged for students from Progresso, CMIS and ScholarPack.
- We also migrate Lunchtime Fixed Period Exclusions from SIMS only.
For any migrated Fixed Period Exclusions, the number of sessions missed can't be viewed on the student profile. You need to go to Students > Behaviour > Fixed Period Exclusions to edit the exclusion to choose which sessions are missed using these instructions: Editing the Fixed Period Exclusion
