Exclusions - This statement on exclusions is written with regard to the DfE publication ’Exclusion from maintained schools, academies and pupil referral units in England’ (September 2017):
The school reserves the right to use exclusion as the final sanction in its Behaviour Policy. Please note, in the absence of the Headteacher, the right to exclude is delegated to either a Deputy Headteacher or the Assistant Headteacher. For serious breaches of school rules, the school may exclude a pupil as an appropriate sanction. For persistent offences, the school will use exclusion as a justifiable means of attempting to modify pupils’ behaviour, usually when other interventions have been exhausted. The school is committed to keeping the number of school days missed to a minimum but for repeat exclusions it is usual for the number of days to be increased each time. After three separate exclusions for any one pupil, the school makes every attempt to arrange for the pupil and parents to be seen by the Governors’ Disciplinary Committee who reinforce the high expectations of the school and enquire as to whether they can be of any assistance in ensuring good behaviour in the future. The school works closely with the Hinckley and Bosworth Behaviour Partnership (HBEP) who provide more in-school support for pupils at risk of exclusion.

No one would doubt the importance of learning to read so we want to share details of a national campaign: 'Turn on the Subtitles'. Literally, there is research which suggests turning on the subtitles can help improve reading skills whilst children are watching TV . Stephen Fry explains the benefits in more detail above. Even if it just helps children to recognise more words, expand their vocabulary or show the pronunciation of unfamiliar words, we think it's worth a try!
