Inclusion toolkit (No need to exclude)

Working together to end exclusions in Devon

This toolkit has been produced by schools and professionals working across Devon who have given up their time to attend consultation and listening events and provided case studies and examples of good practice.

In producing the toolkit, we have also sought the views of children and young people who have been excluded from the school system to address where we have failed to listen to pupil voice.

The toolkit is presented in three parts. The first section sets out the context to the issues and also give school staff, governors and leaders support in carrying out best practice when working with pupils at risk of exclusion.

The second section takes staff through the ‘Assess, plan, do review’ process for pupils at risk of exclusion.

The third element is threaded throughout the toolkit and consists of links through to an online resource bank which gives case studies, practical resources and further training materials to be used as CPD within schools.

We wish to thank everyone who has contributed to the toolkit and would welcome examples of good practice from school that would like to submit materials to the resource bank.
