Home Help for families Campaigns and research We’re also campaigning on Illegal exclusions
2 mins read
Our research, Falling through the net [PDF], found that children with a disability, special educational need or additional need are routinely illegally excluded from school. Almost a quarter (22 percent) of those are illegally excluded every week.
This is having a devastating impact on their education and mental health. Half of parents report they are unable to work due to the impact of illegal exclusions on family life.
A child can only be legally excluded from school for disciplinary reasons. A head teacher must formally tell parents that their child will be excluded by giving them details in writing. Any other exclusions are illegal, and we want them to stop.
