The School Exclusion Project

https://schoolexclusionproject.com/

When a parent whose child faces permanent exclusion from school contacts the Project, a (trained) student director has an initial discussion to ensure that the case is one that the Project can take on. If the case is one within the Projectâ??s remit, the parent is assigned a student representative who prepares and conducts the appeal on their behalf. Approximately 75-80% of our cases involve children with special educational needs.

Education Otherwise

https://www.educationotherwise.org/


Though education is compulsory in the UK for children between the ages of five and sixteen, school is not. Many families prefer to educate their children otherwise than at school, and it is their right under UK law to do so. Home educating families do not have to follow the National Curriculum and there is no single 'right' way to educate a child at home.
