The Academy will deal with any serious incidents and exclusions in line with the policies used by mainstream community schools in the Hull Local Authority. Appeals against exclusions will be heard by an Independent Appeal Panel, set up by the Academy Board. The Independent Appeal Panel decision is final and binding on the Academy Trust. A parent/carer may seek a judicial review of an independent Appeals Panel’s decision. Sirius Academy Noth is a safe place to learn and serious incidents such as assault or physical violence, verbal abuse of staff, racial abuse, substance abuse, vandalism and theft will not be tolerated and will be dealt with appropriately.
