The exclusion from school of children aged four to seven

I’m not sure what the links are between early exclusion from school and future drug problems, but I can’t imagine it could be helpful.  And we do know that exclusion at secondary school is associated with high drug use by pupils.

Today Ofsted have published a report, The exclusion from school of children aged four to seven, ?which explores the issues and how schools can avoid exclusions.

The press release says:

Among the key recommendations from the report are that schools should minimise the exclusion of young children by developing a range of strategies to manage behaviour, from low-level disruption to challenging behaviour. The DCSF should analyse exclusions data annually on a school by school basis and use the information obtained to question local authorities about the challenge and support they provide for primary schools with high numbers of exclusions.

The report itself is available here.
