Pupils excluded or admitted following an exclusion

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

(2) The school’s budget share is to be reduced by the amount A × (B/52) where—

  • A is the amount, in the funding period in which the permanent exclusion takes effect, determined by the authority in accordance with these Regulations to be attributable for the full funding period to a registered pupil of the same age and characteristics 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 or regulation 25 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; 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 1 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 who has been permanently excluded from a maintained school is, in the same funding period, admitted to a school maintained by the local authority (“the admitting school”), the authority must redetermine the admitting school’s budget share in accordance with paragraph (4).

(4) The school’s budget share is to be increased by an amount which may not be less than the amount D × (E/F) 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;

  • 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) Where a permanently excluded pupil is subsequently reinstated by the governing body of the school or by an appeal panel constituted under regulations made under section 52 of the 2002 Act(2), the school’s budget share must be increased by an amount which is no less than G × (H/I) where—

  • G is the amount by which the authority has reduced the school’s budget share;

  • H is the number of complete weeks remaining in the funding period during which the pupil is reinstated; and

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

(7) Paragraphs (1) and (2) also apply where a pupil leaves a maintained school for reasons other than permanent exclusion, and is receiving education funded by a local authority other than at a school which is maintained by that authority.

(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 and Appeals) (Maintained Schools) (Wales) Regulations 2003 (S.I. 2003/3227).

(2)

See the Education (Pupil Exclusions and Appeals) (Maintained Schools) (Wales) Regulations 2003, S.I. 2003/3227 as amended by S.I. 2004/1805, and the Education (Pupil Exclusions and Appeals) (Pupil Referral Units) (Wales) Regulations 2003 (S.I. 2003/3246), as amended by S.I. 2004/1805.
