Re: excluded? suspended?
In the US, a student who is suspended may not return to school for a defined period of time. (When I grew up, they had "in-house suspension" so they were in one room the whole day with only books, rather than getting a "vacation.") You can have a one-day, three-day, or week-long suspension, for example.
A student who is not allowed to return to school has been expelled.
I am not familiar with the term "excluded."

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
