Suspensions and Exclusions Conference 2023

This Conference is now Closed

Recently released DfE figures show that exclusions are up on a pandemic lull with suspensions reaching a record-high. Alternative Provision providers are reportedly overwhelmed with the number of excluded pupils. With the Suspension and Permanent Exclusions Guidance having recently been updated, there is likely to be significant scrutiny in this area in the next academic year.

Join us for this full day conference to explore this difficult area and to ensure that your knowledge is up-to-date. You’ll  hear from a wide range of experts on topics that can help you ensure that you are using these sanctions appropriately and that you are taking steps to minimise suspensions and exclusions. Sessions covered will include; early identification for vulnerable students, reducing exclusions for autistic pupils, successful reintegration, working with parents and carers, tackling persistent disruptive behaviour and much more!

Who should attend?

Headteachers, Deputy and Assistant Heads, Behaviour Leads, DSLs and other members of the SLT.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Ensure you are up to date on the current law and guidance around, including updates to the Suspension and Permanent Exclusions Guidance for September 2023

  • Explore the current landscape in relation to this difficult area

  • Understand which children are vulnerable to exclusion and why

  • Consider how you might be able to use your school data to identify and intervene early with those vulnerable children

  • Understand why pupils with autism are more likely to be suspended or excluded and what adjustments you need to be making to reduce this

  • Improve your reintegration strategy to give children the best chance to return to school successfully

  • Work in collaboration with the pupil, parents, carers and other relevant parties on reintegration

  • Support improved attendance for pupils at risk of suspension or exclusion

  • Take a whole-school approach to persistently disruptive behaviour

  • Work with parents and carers to tackle disruptive behaviour, to avoid unnecessary suspensions and exclusions
