Local Authority Duties

For permanent exclusions, the local authority must arrange suitable full-time education for the pupil to begin no later than the sixth school day of the exclusion. This will be the pupil’s ‘home authority’ in cases where the school is maintained by (or located within) a different local authority.

Paragraph 46 DfE Exclusion Guidance

If your child is in Year 11 and does not have any further public examinations to sit there is no legal obligation for the school or the local authority to provide education.
