Section 104: Notice to parent relating to excluded pupil

507.This section relates to the notice the parent will receive from the school when their child is excluded. Subsection (1) requires the head teacher to give the parent of an excluded pupil a notice containing prescribed information.

508.Subsection (2) requires the notice to include information about the exclusion, specifying the day on which full-time education will be provided.

That responsibility will not exceed five days.

509.Subsection (6) ensures that the notice can be served by any effective method (for example, by sending it home with the child) and does not have to be served by one of the methods set out in section 572 of the 1996 Act.

510.Subsection (7) allows regulations to be made enabling the notice issued to the parent under this section to be combined with the notice the parent receives under section 52(3) of the 2002 Act when their child is excluded.
