exclusion
Many contracts, especially when in standard form, exclude or limit the statutory rights normally implied in favour of the buyer. To rely on such a limitation or exclusion, it must be shown that the buyer was aware of the clause or that the seller gave reasonable notice of it. Such a clause will always be construed in cases of doubt against the person relying on it. Under the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977, implied statutory terms as to satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose, compliance with sample or description cannot be excluded with consumers and in order to be effective against business customers they cannot be unreasonable. The seller's implied warranty that he has or will have the right to sell the goods cannot in any circumstances be excluded or limited nor can he limit or exclude his liability for death or personal injury caused by his negligence.

exclusion
in terms of the Education Act 1996 as amended, schools may exclude children for disciplinary reasons, either for a fixed period or permanently. The courts will intervene where, in implementing the powers under the Act, the school does not act fairly, such as by failing to make known to the student what is being alleged against him: R v. Governors of Dunraven School, ex Parte B. [2000] TLR 68. A similar system applies in Scotland under the Schools General (Scotland) Regulations 1975. See, for example, Wallace v. Dundee Council 2000 SLT (Sh. Ct) 60.
