One of my tutees has been excluded from a 6th form College due to one incident of threatening behaviour before Christmas but mainly due to falling below 85% attendance (she's around 75%). Her mum has five days to appeal and has asked me to help. English isn't her first language and I think she's having trouble understanding the nuances of the College's procedures. It looks like she can find a reason to appeal but I was wondering should this fail, what other options are available to have this decision reversed. I think it is morally wrong because it looks like she's passed her modules so far and the main reason appears to be the College protecting their Ofsted absence measure. Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
