Abstract

An education system will function best in serving all pupils without recourse to school exclusions. In England, the outcomes for excluded pupils are poor, and some social and ethnic groups recurrently are over-represented in permanent and fixed-period exclusion statistics: Black Caribbean and Gypsy/Roma children and those living in more deprived circumstances. As well as the formal exclusion procedures, there is a worrying set of other means of removing an ‘unwanted’ pupil. There is a range of alternatives and, under the banner of community-based inclusion, children and young people can be supported and sustained in the school system. Alternatives include diverse, multilevel provision within schools, managed moves, a range of alternative provision, and multi-agency working. There are sites of success and low numbers of exclusion and these may disseminate.
