star this property answer text <p>Good behaviour in schools is essential to ensure that all pupils can benefit from the opportunities provided by education. We trust headteachers to set and enforce good standards of behaviour in schools. No headteacher takes excluding a child lightly, and any exclusion is based on evidence of that child’s behaviour.</p><p>The youngest children with permanent exclusions from state-funded primary, state-funded secondary and special schools in England were aged 4 in 2016/17.</p><p>As part of their approach, all schools are required by law to have a behaviour policy which outlines measures to encourage good behaviour and prevent all forms of bullying amongst pupils. The policy should set out the behaviour expected of pupils; the sanctions that will be imposed for misbehaviour; and rewards for good behaviour. This should be communicated to all pupils, school staff and parents. There are no rules about the age at which pupils can be excluded. The department supports a headteacher’s use of exclusion where it is warranted, regardless of the age of the pupil.</p><p>Data used to derive published exclusion statistics are collected via the school census and covers those settings in scope of the statutory guidance on exclusions. Data does not cover independent schools, sixth form colleges or further education colleges, all of which have separate exclusion procedures.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The most recent data from academic year 2016/2017 show that there were 25 permanent exclusions (0.3% of all permanent exclusions) and 4,565 fixed period exclusions (1.2% of all fixed period exclusions) recorded with the reason of ‘racist abuse’. This includes derogatory racist statements, racist bullying, racist graffiti, racist taunting and harassment and swearing that can be attributed to racist characteristics. The data can be sourced from the National Tables spreadsheet (table 4), published at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/permanent-and-fixed-period-exclusions-in-england-2016-to-2017" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/permanent-and-fixed-period-exclusions-in-england-2016-to-2017</a></p><p>Racism has no place in our schools and any incident is unacceptable. The department supports head teachers using exclusion where it is warranted.</p><p>The government want to make sure that all children learn the values that underpin our society – including fairness, tolerance and respect. These values help knit our communities together, which is why education is at the heart of the government’s integration strategy. All state funded schools have a legal obligation to promote community cohesion.</p><p>The government has committed to providing over £2.8 million of funding from September 2016 to March 2020 to four anti-bullying organisations to support schools to tackle bullying. This includes the Anne Frank Trust, which we are funding to develop and deliver their ‘free to be’ debate programme. The programme encourages young people to think about the importance of tackling prejudice, discrimination and bullying.</p><p>In November 2018, the department published the attached 'Respectful School Communities' publication, a self-review and sign-posting tool to support schools to develop a whole-school approach which promotes respect and discipline. This can combat bullying, harassment and prejudice of any kind.</p><p>In March 2018, the government launched an externally led review of exclusions practice, chaired by Edward Timpson CBE. The review is exploring how head teachers use exclusion, and why pupils with particular characteristics are more likely to be excluded from school. It is also considering the differences in exclusion rates across primary and secondary schools in England.</p><p>The full terms of reference for the review are attached.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>A pupil can only be deleted lawfully from the admission register of a school on the grounds prescribed in regulation 8 of the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006, as amended. The department has recently written to all secondary schools, reminding them of the rules surrounding exclusion.</p><p>Schools can exclude pupils, either permanently or for a fixed period, for disciplinary reasons. The department supports schools in using exclusion where this is warranted. Permanent exclusion should be used only as a last resort, in response to a serious breach or persistent breaches of the school's behaviour policy and where allowing the pupil to remain in school would seriously harm the education or welfare of the pupil or others in the school.</p><p>The attached statutory guidance on exclusions is clear that ‘informal’ or ‘unofficial’ exclusions, such as sending a pupil home ‘to cool off’, are unlawful, regardless of whether they occur with the agreement of parents or carers. Any exclusion of a pupil, even for short periods of time, must be formally recorded.</p><p>In March, the government launched an externally led review of exclusions practice, led by Edward Timpson CBE. The review will explore how head teachers use exclusion, and why pupils with particular characteristics are more likely to be excluded from school. It will also consider the practice in schools in relation to directing pupils to alternative provision without excluding. The review aims to report by the end of the year.

star this property answer text <p>The government supports schools in using exclusion where it is warranted, underpinned by statutory guidance issued by the department. Following an exclusion, pupils are not unsupervised. There are clear duties in place to ensure that full time education must be put in place for any pupil from the fifth day of an exclusion.</p><p> </p><p>In the first five school days of an exclusion (or until the start date of any alternative provision or the end of the exclusion where this is earlier), the attached statutory guidance requires a head teacher to notify the pupil’s parents of the days on which they must ensure that the pupil is not present in a public place at any time during school hours. Any parent who fails to comply with this duty without reasonable justification commits an offence and may be given a fixed penalty notice or be prosecuted. The head teacher must notify the parents of the days on which their duty applies without delay and, at the latest, by the end of the afternoon session.</p><p> </p><p>On the 9 April, The Home Office (HO) published the Serious Violence Strategy. This sets out the government response to tackling county lines and establishes a new balance between prevention and rigorous law enforcement activity.</p><p> </p><p>The strategy set out the government’s response to serious violence and outlines an ambitious programme involving 61 commitments and actions including a new £11 million Early Intervention Youth Fund to support communities for early intervention and prevention with young people for financial years 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 and a new National County Lines Co-ordination Centre to tackle violent and exploitative criminal activity associated with county lines.</p><p> </p><p>The attached HO guide for frontline practitioners on child criminal exploitation was launched in July 2017 and supports this work. The HO are also undertaking nationwide awareness-raising communication activity about the threat of county lines targeted to young and vulnerable people and how to avoid becoming involved and exploited by gangs.</p><p> </p>
