The system is failing the children who need it most.
School exclusions - students being supsended or expelled - are increasing.
This isn't just an alarming statistic. It's a social justice issue. Excluded children are more likely to be in care, have grown up in poverty, or have special educational needs.
We believe it is possible to reduce school exclusions. The Pinball Kids project looks at why exclusions are increasing and how we can support the young people who need our help.
