A profile of pupil exclusions in England

Details

In autumn 2011, The Children’s Commissioner launched a formal inquiry into the system of school exclusions in England. In order to inform their inquiry the Children’s Commissioner asked the Department for Education (DfE) to supply relevant policy information, research and statistical evidence on exclusions in England. A number of different statistical analyses were undertaken to expand the evidence base.

This research report presents the data and statistical analyses that were provided to the Children’s Commissioner. This is published alongside findings from the existing statistical evidence.
