Analysis suggests disabled pupils more likely to be excluded

The Herald features a report which suggests that children in Scotland with additional support needs (ASN) are more likely to be excluded than pupils without disabilities. The article discusses a recent tribunal which ruled against a school that had repeatedly excluded an autistic pupil, judging that the council had not made “reasonable adjustments” to support the pupil. The article highlights the negative impact exclusion can have on pupils and looks at the difficulties other parents have faced in accessing the right support for their children in school.
