Abstract

We argue in this paper that the law and administrative guidance on exclusion from school, as exercised in England, has always been poor. With the Independent Appeals Panel (IAP) now replaced by the Independent Review Panel (IRP) with a more circumscribed remit, protection for some of our most vulnerable and troubled children has weakened. The law is cumbersome in matters of child welfare and misleads parents into thinking redress is likely through reviews and appeals at the Governors Disciplinary Committee (GDC) level, within three weeks, the Appeal and now Review process, another three weeks, or beyond.
