School exclusion in primary - will it mess up my DD's secondary school prospects?

DD is seven and has behavioural issues, hitting and kicking other kids. I know these will have to be tackled, and we have treatment with a psychologist ongoing.
The behaviour (which is totally unacceptable, I know this) has resulted in a total three days of exclusion on two separate occasions.
This will of course go on the school records. Does anyone have experience if having multiple incidents of exclusion on your child's record has had any impact on them moving into secondary or anywhere else? I know this has to be tackled and am tackling it... I would just like to be prepared for anything further out. Thank you!

I’m really sorry, I don’t know the answer. You might get a few more replies if you post in _Chat or Primary Education

If you mean secondary in the state sector, then no it will make no difference at all - unless her behaviour worstens to the point where a school feels unable to meet her needs (her behaviour would have to be very extreme for this to be the case).
If you are looking at private school then some may refuse to admit if they suspect behavioural problems.
