Placement Withdrawal

A placement may be withdrawn if a student demonstrates an unwillingness to work towards goals or if their behaviour is impacting negatively on the group as a whole. Withdrawal of placement will only take place after discussions with both the student and their parents/carers.

This need not be entirely negative for some students as they are forced to be part of the decision process and to recognize that they have to take responsibility for the outcome. Home schools can also use this opportunity to formalize a structure (discipline or welfare) for the returning student in order to offer support.
