School Exclusion

The Department for Education (DfE) has published statistics showing the levels of permanent and fixed-period exclusions by school type in England. The figures show that disruptive behaviour was the most common reason for both permanent and fixed period exclusions; pupils with identified special educational needs (SEN) accounted for almost half of all permanent exclusions and fixed period exclusions. The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) has released interim findings from research which indicates that one in two pupils permanently excluded from schools have a mental health issue.
