    Quick question to Heads...have you ever had to permanently excluded? If so, what was the reason? Any shared stories would be much appreciated.

    Morning oogiemac- only once in 7 years.A child who repeatedly made physical and sexual threats to other children , and even knocked one of his peers out cold...that was on the back of him having at least 4 fixed term exclusions prior to that...we'd done everything possible to support him first but his position on the class with other children and their parents became just untenable...

    On several occasions, all for disciplinary reasons. It is unlawful to exclude for reasons other than discipline.

    However, details - any details - should remain confidential, so don't expect details from any head teacher worth his/her salt.

    FTE yes, PEX no.
    I have a collegiate who had PEXd after everything they had tried failed and there was still violence.
    Governors then overturned it...

    Same here and for the same reasons. The parents were quite supportive as it meant that the LA had to provide the additional support that the child clearly needed.

    I was close to another one having tried everything. However the behaviour person who we were working with took the child, with the agreement of the parents, to a local PRU. Her behaviour changed immediately following her visit and there were no further problems.

    A very, very few times over lots of years. A last resort when everything else had failed. No, no details on here. Make sure you have evidence that all reasonable adjustments were made and consistently applied if the child has SEN, which they probably do.
