Included, engaged and involved part 2: a positive approach to managing school exclusions, 06/10/10 - 29/12/10 [S]

The Scottish Government is consulting on national guidance for schools and local authorities on school exclusion. Consultation to 29 December 2010.

The purpose of the guidance is to develop and clarify national policy on exclusion from schools in the context of national and local government responsibilities and aims for children and young people. The overarching aim is to support whole school communities, learning establishments and their partners to keep all children fully included, engaged and involved in their education, wherever it takes place.

The guidance will provide an opportunity for learning establishments and local authorities to reassess their local policy and procedures in line with national policy and emerging best practice.
