Internal Exclusion? Isolation? Suspension? Permanent records?Watch
Internal Exclusion is a punishment during the school day, where you sit and do work given by teachers separated from other children - usually you do it a head office or an exclusion room.
I got the internal exclusion for stealing a cookie from the school canteen.
I've been wondering whether or not this would affect me later in life when applying for universities or jobs. Would they ever know if I got the exclusion? It goes on your school permanent record, does that even mean anything? What the consequences of the exclusion except for spending the whole day in a cold room?
A friend told me that it doesn't say why you got internally excluded though -assuming you get some behaviour report when you leave school. If that's true it doesn't make it look that bad as people got internal exclusions for selling sweets/swearing,name calling/bring fun snaps to school.
I know that later on, my headteacher has to write a reference to the university - would he mention it if it is a one off? I'm in Year 9 and been achieving good grades throughout the years, predicted to get 3A* 3A 2B.
They said I only got an internal exclusion is because there is nothing like this on your record.
Thanks for helping,
Normally the records just say the number of offences, not why you were given them. So, for example, they might see that you've had one internal exclusion but no other detentions etc.
It isn't going to have a huge detrimental effect on your life - it certainly shouldn't hold you back from getting any job!
