Young People and Families

The School Exclusions Hub provides information and tools for community and advice organisations to enable them to support families through the process of challenging unfair school exclusions.

We aim to grow this area of the Hub in the coming months to include more resources to help young people and families.

We are always working to increase the number of organisations able to offer support to families facing exclusion. However, if you are not able to find help, you can find further information to help you challenge an exclusion yourself in these places:

  • Child Law Advice Service - Free specialist legal advice and information on child, family and education law for parents, carers and young people in England from Coram Children’s Legal Centre.
  • The School Exclusion Project - The School Exclusion Project provides free legal representation to challenge permanent school exclusion.
  • LawStuff - Free legal information for children and young people, run by Coram Children’s Legal Centre.
  • ACE Education - ACE Education Training provides independent advice and information for parents on education issues in England. High quality training services covering education law and guidance are provided to a wide range of education professionals.
