The decision to exclude a child from school is not taken lightly and is only ever an absolute last resort.
The school has done everything they could to support the child; however, there have been a number of very serious incidents and the welfare of this child has to be balanced with that of fellow pupils and staff.
We are now working with all parties to find the most appropriate environment that will meet the future needs of the child.
