6. Internal exclusion/seclusion/isolation

‘Internal exclusion’ is when a pupil is excluded within the school for disciplinary reasons. 

This may include being removed from their class to a separate room or booth within the school.

Schools can adopt a policy which allows pupils to be placed in an area away from other pupils for a limited period.

If a school uses seclusion or isolation rooms as a disciplinary penalty this should be made clear in their behaviour policy.

Pupils should be in isolation no longer than is necessary and their health, safety and welfare must always be put first.
