Event summary

There is growing concern about the rising numbers of exclusions and off-rolling in schools in England.  Following the recently updated DfE guidance on suspension and school exclusion that came into force on 1st September 2023, join us to explore how schools, local authorities and PRUs can provide high quality support for children most at risk of exclusion.

We will discuss working together to offer effective interventions and solutions. How can we equip schools and services to help vulnerable children remain in school, and ensure that all children are given the chance to thrive academically, emotionally and socially?

Join with colleagues and leading voices across the sector to explore the key challenges facing schools, including how schools are managing persistent disruptive behaviour, inside and outside the classroom. Don’t miss this opportunity to network online and put your questions to schools and settings who have seen success in preventing fixed-term and permanent exclusions.
