Ofsted announces crackdown on school exclusion 'hot spots'

Ofsted is to write to more than 100 head teachers across eight exclusion "hot spots", to raise concerns about the high number of pupils being removed from schools in their area. The eight areas are Middlesbrough, Barnsley, Redcar and Cleveland, Doncaster, North Lincolnshire, Rotherham, Sheffield and North East Lincolnshire. 

Ofsted said that while it accepts that schools have a right to exclude pupils when their behaviour is violent, is threatening towards teachers or is affecting other pupils' learning, it is concerned that schools may be removing challenging pupils to boost their performance.
