Abstract

Zero exclusion schools are possible. More realistically, clusters of schools, with support, coordination and brokering by the local authority (LA) or through local partnerships, can organise and sustain an inclusive educational community. Exclusion from school is a quiet mockery of Every Child Matters. Even with the coalition government’s abandonment of the requirements for local attendance and behaviour partnerships (due to be in place from September, 2010) and even with the Academies Act in place, it still makes sense in terms of social justice, educational and child support and saving money to reduce exclusions. This article looks at the social justice case through secondary data and reports research and action about how committed local authorities along with their communities can successfully reduce or eliminate permanent exclusions. All political persuasions can sign up to this and prevent harm which is experienced disproportionately by some groups.
