Any decision to exclude a pupil from school must be ‘lawful, reasonable and fair’. If you think the decision is not lawful, reasonable or fair, you can appeal and ask the school to reconsider the exclusion. It is unlawful for a school to treat a Gypsy, Roma or Traveller pupil less favourably in comparison to other pupils with the same sort of behaviour. Schools should consider what extra support might be needed to reduce the risk of exclusion among GRT pupils.
