Checklist of Expectations - Reasonable Adjustments

National Guidance and or Legislation

Schools must also ensure that any provision, criterion, or practice does not discriminate against pupils by unfairly increasing their risk of exclusion. For example, if reasonable adjustments have not been made for a pupil with a disability that can manifest itself in breaches of school rules if needs are not met, a decision to exclude may be discriminatory (DfE, 2023, p.10).

Expectations

Legal duties under the Equality Act (2010) must be followed when considering an exclusion for a child or young person who may have a protected characteristic. An exclusion may be discriminatory where the behaviour displayed is linked to an unmet need, failure to make suitable provision and/or make reasonable adjustments.
