star this property answer text <p>The government has announced an externally led review of exclusions which will be led by the former Minister for Vulnerable Children and Families, Edward Timpson. The review will consider how schools use exclusion and how this affects all pupils, but in particular why some groups of children are more likely to be excluded from school. This includes pupils from certain ethnic groups; pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years; pupils with special educational needs; looked after children; and children in need.</p><p> </p><p>The terms of reference for the exclusions review is attached.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Exclusions can only be issued for disciplinary reasons. It is unlawful to exclude for a non-disciplinary reason. For example, it would be unlawful to exclude a pupil simply because they have additional needs or a disability that the school feels it is unable to meet.</p><p> </p><p>The annual data on exclusions includes the numbers of children excluded for disciplinary reasons by type of special educational need, including those with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. The data is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/permanent-and-fixed-period-exclusions-in-england-2015-to-2016" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/permanent-and-fixed-period-exclusions-in-england-2015-to-2016</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The exclusions review will explore exclusions practice and implications for pupil groups disproportionately represented in the national statistics. The review considers how schools use exclusion and how this impacts on all pupils. In particular, it will consider why some groups of children are more likely to be excluded from school. It will also seek to identify best practice which can be shared across the system.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Information on excluded pupils is collected from schools via the school census data collection. The department does not routinely collect information about a child’s living arrangements, nor does it collect information on a child’s relationship with their parents or other adults.</p><p>The department does collect the home address and certain other characteristic information that will provide some insight into the home background of individual children. This includes information concerning: whether the pupil would be eligible for free school meals or other funding streams (including early years pupil premium and disability access fund); whether the pupil is a service child; and whether the pupil has left care in England and Wales through either adoption, a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order.</p><p>A robust approvals panel and other controls are in place to ensure that our data is safely guarded and used only in legal, secure and ethical ways.</p>
