School exclusions

When a child is excluded

Exclusion is a measure which headteachers can use to deal with a breach of the school's behaviour policy.

The policy must be available on the school's website.

During the first five days of an exclusion, your child must not be in a public place during school hours without good reason. You could be liable for a Fixed Penalty Notice.

If your child has been excluded and you would like advice:

  • email
  • call 01522 555798 (North Lincolnshire) or 01522 555816 (South Lincolnshire)
  • write to Pupil Reintegration Team, Lincolnshire Children's Services, Room 141D, County Offices, Newland, Lincoln, LN1 1YQ
