  7. Pupils exclusions in Wakefield schools treble in ten years

    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    The number of children expelled from schools in Wakefield has almost trebled in less than a decade, according to a council report.

    A total of 83 pupils were permanently excluded during the 2017/18 academic year, compared with just 30 in 2009/10.

    It added the most common reasons for expelling a pupil were persistent disruptive behaviour, verbal abuse against an adult and physical assault on a student.

    The report, which will be discussed by councillors next week, said that a special team run by the authority was working with schools to keep the number of expulsions down.
