Exclusions from 16-19 sixth form academies

Can anyone point me in the direction of the legislation for 16-19 academies please? The 'Exclusion from maintained schools, academies and pupil referral units in England' statutory guidance 2017 specifically says that it doesn't apply to 16-19 academies, so what does?

Many thanks.

Not sure of the legislation but at 16+ they have to be pretty bad to be excluded, maybe worth focusing on the reason why rather than the legalities

According to the Schools Exclusion Project, 16-19 provision are able to exclude without being subject to the legislation. They say that you can write a letter asking for leave to appeal and that you need to look carefully at the wording of the exclusion letter,p.

After 16, children don't need to be in school it's a privilege. If they've done something that warrants an exclusion then perhaps they ought to be looking for employment/an apprenticeship? Has the young person done something that definitely warrants exclusion?

They don’t legally have to be there, so you can’t enforce their non existent “right” to be there. If they’ve behaved badly enough to be excluded, do they actually want to be there anyway?
