Education information for children and young people with Special Educational Needs


SEND IASS can provide information and support for parents/carers of children and young people who have been excluded or are at risk of exclusion from school. We can offer a confidential, impartial service providing individual support to families of excluded pupils.

The help we can offer:

  • Provide information and advice and help you to understand the exclusion process.
  • Inform you of your rights and those of your child.
  • Help you to work with the school to help address your child's difficulties.
  • Help you to work with other professionals to help resolve any difficulties
  • Give you information about how to prepare your representation for Governor's meetings and Independent Review Panels.

You may find the Exclusions Frequently Asked Questions useful.

The Department for Education (DfE) produces a comprehensive range of advice to schools around school behaviour. It also produces statutory guidance for schools on the exclusion processes the school should follow which parents may find useful. This document is called: Exclusion from maintained schools, academies and pupil referral units in England.
