IEC

Students are referred to the Internal Exclusion Centre (IEC) as an alternative to fixed-term external exclusion.

During their time in the Internal Exclusion Centre, students are provided with work to complete and every effort is made to ensure that it is in accordance with their timetable.  Students will also be encouraged to assess behaviour during their time in the Internal Exclusion Centre and reflect on what led to them being placed there.  Internal Exclusion staff will work with students to find a way forward in an attempt to avoid further referrals. Whilst in the Internal Exclusion Centre, all Academy rules relating to uniform, behaviour, equipment etc. still apply.

Students have a supervised lunch where they eat their lunch in the Internal Exclusion Centre. Students referred to the provision will not be dismissed until 3.30pm.

A referral to the Internal Exclusion Centre is an extremely serious sanction, second only to external fixed-term exclusion from school. A referral to the Internal Exclusion Centre will only be made in instances where students have seriously breached or persistently flouted Academy rules. To reflect this, a component of the referral will involve students completing Community Service, which may include supervised litter picking or maintaining the physical environment in the Internal Exclusion Centre. If students fail to take this component seriously, they may have their internal exclusion extended or face external fixed-term exclusion.
