Reintegration meetings after fixed-term exclusions: guidance and template form
Find out what you should cover in reintegration meetings and use our template to record your notes. See also example exclusion policies to learn what other schools cover in these meetings.
You should have a strategy for reintegrating a pupil
While it's not a requirement to have a reintegration meeting for pupils who return to school after fixed-term exclusions, you should have a strategy setting out how their behaviour will be managed.
If you hold a reintegration meeting, bear in mind that you can't compel the pupil or their parent to attend - you must reinstate the pupil regardless.
This is explained in paragraph 13 (page 9) of the DfE's statutory guidance on exclusions.
What to cover in the meeting
Cover the following points in relation to behaviour and academic progress:
- What the pupil wants to achieve
- Where the pupil is in relation to his or her goals
- What the pupil will do to achieve those goals
Make sure you set realistic timelines and clear criteria for measuring progress.
