When a child is temporarily excluded (e.g. for five days) the school continues to set, monitor and correct homework, but for pupils permanently excluded the LEA has this responsibility, and may either arrange a home tutor or (more likely) issue an order to attend a named PRU, a special school, an Independent Out of County (IOC) school or possibly, in conjunction with the courts, a secure unit, in locked accommodation. Except in the case of the secure units, the parents are responsible for ensuring that the child attends and, as with mainstream schools, may be liable to prosecution and fines if they fail to do so.
