Number of excluded pupils in Wokingham has dropped

Aug 21, 2009

From an article at GetBracknell.co.uk:

The number of children expelled from Wokingham schools for bad behaviour has dropped by 30 per cent, but work to keep pupils in education is ongoing.

The latest figures from the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) reveal there were 30 permanent exclusions from Wokingham schools, most of which are secondary, in 2007/08.

This is a drop from the 43 children who were excluded in 2005/06.

Cllr Stanton added: “Over the past year our schools have implemented a range of effective measures including learning mentors and learning support units to tackle exclusions.

“The council also offers training to teachers, for example in peer mentoring and restorative justice.

“Additional support has been provided by behaviour support workers, and this is tailored to the requirements of the individual schools.

“By working together we anticipate the figures for 2008/09 will show a significant further reduction."
