LA Admission Information.

The Fair Access Team


Who are they and what do they do?

The Fair Access Team support students and families when a permanent exclusion has been issued by a mainstream school.  A Fair Access Officer will contact you to explain what will happen following the exclusion. 


The Fair Access Officer will support you at the Governing Body meeting where you will get an opportunity to put your side of the story to the Governors and explain your point of view.


If your child’s permanent exclusion is ‘upheld’ by the Governing Body, the education provision will be available at Brownhill Learning Community until they are ready to return to mainstream education. 


Reintegration to mainstream

The Fair Access Team work closely with Brownhill Learning Community to reintegrate students from Brownhill Learning Community in finding a suitable school.  Support is provided at the admission meeting and subsequent review meetings so parents / carers and students have an opportunity to discuss progress.
