- Statutory guidance
10 January 2013
Local authorities are responsible for arranging suitable education for permanently excluded pupils, and for other pupils who – because of illness or other reasons – would not receive suitable education without such arrangements being made.
Governing bodies of schools are responsible for arranging suitable full-time education from the sixth day of a fixed period exclusion.
Schools may also direct pupils off-site for education, to help improve their behaviour.
Statutory guidance sets out the Government’s expectations of local authorities and maintained schools who commission alternative provision and pupil referral units. The Government expects those who are not legally required to have regard to the statutory guidance to still use it as a guide to good practice.
