“The Behaviour Panel meets each month during term time to discuss referrals of primary age pupils who may require alternative provision or support in their current school. The panel considers pupils with SEN and those with an EHCP and consultations from other LA’s about places at Littledown. Pupils are included on the Behaviour Panel agenda following referrals from Slough schools. The purpose of the meeting is to make a decision that will ensure the pupil remains in mainstream education if possible or is provided with education suitable to their needs.
Pupils to be Considered at Behaviour Panel
The list below includes most of the categories of pupils who will be considered at the panel although it is not exhaustive. Other pupils will be considered on a case by case basis.
(a) Pupils who have been permanently excluded
(b) Pupils at imminent risk of permanent exclusion where some or all of the following apply:

Littledown School receive referrals from schools on a behaviour panel referral form about pupils who are at risk of exclusion or not receiving education.
