We wanted to make you aware that the Secretary of State announced that the DfE will be consulting on revisions to the existing behaviour and exclusions guidance. To help inform guidance revisions, the DfE have launched a call for evidence today on behaviour management strategies, mobile phones, managed moves, and in-school units.

 

The link to the call for evidence is here: Behaviour management strategies, in-school units and managed moves - Department for Education - Citizen Space

 

Please bring any key points you feel are relevant for a SEC response to the forthcoming SEC meeting, this can also be sent prior to the meeting if you prefer. There will be dedicated time to discuss this within the meeting.

 

The SEC planning group also met with the exclusions team at the DfE last week to discuss the concerns around the high level of exclusions within SEN, along with other shared concerns. This will be discussed within the next SEC meeting in more detail and the agenda will be sent in due course.
