For example, to what extent would it be reasonable to hold a school accountable for the GCSE results of a pupil who had been excluded several years earlier?

The measures are in response to a landmark review of exclusions by Edward Timpson.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds, endorsing the listing, promised "better clarity" for colleges over the correct spend of exclusions.

Mr Timpson, a former education minister, said there was "clear room for improvement" in arrangements for pupils who have been excluded.

Critics say many of these children may have been illegally "off-rolled", with schools persuading parents to home-school them because the pupils are too hard to teach.

Mr Timpson warned there modified into "too powerful variation in the usage of exclusions and too many overlooked opportunities".

Overall, 0.1 per cent of the 8million children in schools in England were permanently excluded in 2016/17 - an average of 40 a day - the highest figure since 2007/8.

"This makes it more hard to prevent challenging behaviour escalating to the point of exclusion, and we believe this has fuelled the rise in the rate of exclusions in recent years".

There were calls for more scrutiny of how exclusions tend to be concentrated in some "vulnerable" groups.

It also shows that 78% of permanent exclusions were issued to children who had special educational needs (SEN), or classified as in need or eligible for free school meals.

Shaded Caribbean pupils are probably to be excluded than White British, nonetheless younger of us from Indian and Bangladeshi backgrounds salvage decrease rates of exclusion.

A WIDE-RANGING review of school exclusions has found "too much variation" in pupils kicked out of school.

Damian Hinds, education secretary, said: "Too many children can fall through the cracks, so I want schools to be accountable for the pupils they exclude, alongside tackling the practice of illegal off-rolling".

There were warnings of a "worse trajectory" for excluded pupils, alongside with an elevated probability of changing correct into a younger perpetrator or being out of labor.

The education secretary acknowledged it modified into valuable "now not to design a straightforward causal link between exclusions and knife crime, as there's now not a creep proof to assist this up". Mr Timpson makes it very clear in his report that it is vital to attract and develop more great teachers and leaders in alternative provision, and that more investment is needed in buildings and facilities.

"It is also disappointing that the Department for Education's response over boosting the availability of high-quality alternative provision is so woolly".

He said that a new Ofsted framework would contribute to reducing off-rolling.

Mark Lehain, director of Parents and Teachers for Excellence, said: 'It's reassuring to see both Timpson and the government back heads to do what it takes to keep their schools safe places to learn and work.

Yesterday, Mr Hinds insisted that the move would not be detrimental to schools trying to enforce a strict discipline policy. To support schools to ensure all exclusions are appropriate, we need to be honest about how funding cuts make it much harder to meet young people's individual needs.
