Inclusion at hellesdon high school
The aims of the Inclusion Centre are:
- to reduce the number of students excluded from mainstream education
- to encourage students to modify their behaviour
- to ensure that any student who is internally excluded has access to the School curriculum
Guidance on Internal Exclusion
Internal exclusion is the equivalent of what was previously an 'exclusion'. If the gravity of a breach of School rules warrants a student's temporary removal from the School community, and other disciplinary procedures are not deemed sufficient, then the student will be internally excluded.
Internal exclusion is a disciplinary measure which follows on from other procedures in place in the School. Before a student is internally excluded, other procedures will have been explored, such as lunchtime detentions, departmental procedures, reports, duty room, Saturday morning detention and parental involvement. A student should be aware that if his/her behaviour is inappropriate and a continuing issue, internal exclusion will be the outcome.
Internal exclusion of a student will be decided at the discretion of the Head of Year, Head of Inclusion and Head Teacher.
