Exclusion of pupils
The power to exclude a pupil from a school and the circumstances under which a pupil may be excluded are set out in Regulation 4 of the Schools General (Scotland) Regulations 1975, as amended. The power to exclude and therefore legal responsibility for exclusion, lies with an education authority. It is, however, open to an education authority to devolve the power to exclude to senior management level in schools.
Further information on exclusion can be found in the Exclusion Policy under 'Online Tools' on the right.
