Speaker: Andy Cutting
NAS Specialist Exclusions & Alternative Provision Advice Coordinator

Light refreshments will be provided

This seminar is for all parents and carers of children and young people with autism who would like to know what they can do if their child is excluded from school, or is at risk of exclusion.
The talk will cover official exclusions (fixed period and permanent), but also informal (unlawful) exclusions, internal exclusions, part-time timetables, managed moves and the exclusion of pupils on the autism spectrum from school trips and afterschool clubs.
Some of the steps schools could take to overcome barriers to learning and thus avoid the need for exclusion will also be discussed, together with a school’s duty to make reasonable adjustments to its policies and practices for pupils with disabilities (under the Equality Act 2010).
