This report by the Office of the Children’s Commissioner which looks in detail at the issue of illegal exclusions from school and what needs to change to improve things. These illegal exclusions are affecting a small, but significant minority of schools. It is of particular concern that many of those who are illegally excluded also come from the groups suffering inequality, coming from particular ethnic backgrounds, or having special educational, behavioural or other needs. The report provides quantitative evidence from teachers and school leaders about the scale and nature of illegal exclusions from schools in England.
