DfE colleagues wish to draw your attention to their launching a consultation on revisions to the 2012 statutory guidance on the exclusion of pupils, to make the rules that apply to exclusions and the process of review clearer. They would like to invite you to respond to the consultation, so that SEND issues can be fully considered as the revision of the guidance is finalised.

The consultation document and response form can be found here. The deadline for replies is 25 April.
