It is widely recognised that the process of permanent and fixed-term exclusion is painful for everyone involved.
For parents and carers it may feel like a journey into the unknown, making the future seem uncertain and daunting. Exclusion comes with a huge amount of documentation and complicated legalistic information, with often little support or guidance around the emotional difficulty that is involved with the process.
Alongside the parents and carers of Pears Family School, we have created the Turning things around resource to capture the lived experience of families who have faced exclusion, with the hope that it may support other parents and carers.
