Exclusions and fair access

Exclusions and Alternative Provision Review: Feedback Implementation Plan

The Exclusions and Alternative Provision Review was initiated in August 2020 because the local and national context (such as the 2019 OFTED framework and Worcestershire’s Education and Skills Strategy 2019 to 2024) indicate that approaches in Worcestershire require review.

About the service

The Fair Access and Exclusions Team provides support for children and young people, parents/carers, school leaders, governing bodies and other professionals with exclusions and ensuring pupil receive a suitable education. The team also work to secure the right school/setting place for children and young people who meet the 'Hard to Place' criteria within the the Fair Access Protocol.

The Fair Access protocol ensures that ‘hard to place’ pupils are admitted quickly to a mainstream school in order to minimise the number of pupils in Worcestershire County Council area who are at risk of underachievement through being out of school.

Information can be found on the Worcestershire Children First website
