Who produces the guidance for the process of school exclusions?

The Department for Education (DfE) produces the guidance for exclusions.

Governing Bodies, Local Authorities, Principals, Academy Trusts, Special Educational Needs Experts and Independent Review Panels must all follow the guidance.

The DfE published its current version of the exclusions guidance in September 2012. A later version, which it published in January 2015, was withdrawn due to a legal challenge.
