Each academic year over 5000 young people are permanently excluded from mainstream schools in England.

This course is ideal if you child is at risk of, or already has been permanently excluded from school .
Each lesson will explain a particular part of the permanent exclusion process, enabling you to make fully informed decisions about how best to support your child.
