Pupils permanently excluded from, or leaving, maintained schools

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

23.—(1) Where a pupil is permanently excluded from a school maintained by a local education authority, the authority must redetermine the school’s budget share for that funding period in accordance with paragraph (2).

(2) The school’s budget share must be reduced by the amount

where—

  • A is the amount, in the funding period in which the permanent exclusion takes effect, determined by the authority in accordance with this Part, to be attributable for the full funding period to a registered pupil of the same age and personal circumstances as the pupil in question at primary or secondary schools maintained by the authority:

    • for the purposes of this definition, the amount attributable to a registered pupil is the sum of the amounts determined in accordance with the authority’s formula as determined in accordance with these Regulations by reference to pupil numbers rather than by reference to the number of places at the school or any other factor or criterion not dependent on pupil numbers (except that, where the registered pupil in question is a pupil in respect of whom grant is payable to the authority by the LSC under section 7 of the 2000 Act, the amount attributable to that pupil must be £3,019 for funding period 1 and £3,131 for funding period 2); and

  • B is the number of complete weeks remaining in the funding period calculated from the relevant date:

    • except that where the permanent exclusion takes effect on or after 1st April in a school year at the end of which pupils of the same age, or age group, as the pupil in question normally leave that school prior to being admitted to another school with a different pupil age range, B is the number of complete weeks remaining in that school year calculated from the relevant date.

(3) Where a pupil is admitted to a school maintained by a local education authority (“the admitting school”) who has been permanently excluded from another maintained school in that financial year the authority must redetermine the admitting school’s budget share in accordance with paragraph (4).

(4) The admitting school’s budget share must be increased by an amount which may not be less than the amount

where—

  • D is the amount by which the authority reduce the budget share of the school from which the pupil was permanently excluded, or would have reduced it had that school been maintained by the authority;

  • E is the number of complete weeks remaining in the funding period during which the pupil is a registered pupil at the admitting school; and

  • F is the number of complete weeks remaining in the funding period calculated from the relevant date.

(5) For the purposes of this regulation, the relevant date has the meaning prescribed in regulations made under section 494 of the 1996 Act(1).

(6) Paragraphs (1) and (2) also apply where pupils have been deleted from the admissions register of a maintained school—

(a)to attend an educational or training establishment other than a maintained school or an independent school, or

(b)to access an education programme provided by a registered charity through the internet.

(1)

Section 494(5) of the 1996 Act, which was substituted by paragraph 128 of Schedule 30 to the 1998 Act, provides that regulations may prescribe when a permanent exclusion is to be regarded as taking effect. The Education (Amount to Follow Permanently Excluded Pupil) Regulations 1999 (S.I. 1999/495) provide that a permanent exclusion takes place on the “relevant date” as defined in those regulations, and amendments to them in the Education (Pupil Exclusions) (Miscellaneous Amendments) (England) Regulations 2004 (S.I. 2004/402). On and after 22nd March 2004, the “relevant date” is the date that an appeal panel constituted under regulations made under section 52 of the 2002 Act decides not to direct reinstatement; or if there is no appeal, on the day after the last date on which an appeal may be made, or on the day (if earlier) that the parent (or pupil who has attained the age of 18) notifies the local education authority that he does not intend to appeal.
