The Department for Education updated guidance for schools on suspensions and exclusions in September 2022 and last month issued further updates, coming into effect on 1st September this year, subsequent to new School Discipline statutory regulations being laid before parliament on 25th May. The role of governance is a vital element of suspensions and exclusions and falls within our compliance responsibilities.

This session will ensure you are aware of the current role of governance, including the expectations of clerks, for the period up to the end of this academic year and then beyond September.
