‘She deserves an education’: outcry as academy excludes 41% of pupils

In the most recent academic year, Outwood academy in Ormesby had the highest rate of fixed-term exclusions of any school in the country, suspending 41% of its students.

According to analysis by the Guardian, 45 schools in England excluded at least 20% of their pupils in 2016-17, nine of which were part of the Outwood Grange academies trust, which runs 30 schools in Yorkshire, Humberside and the east Midlands.

While the trust argues that it has turned around the fortunes of some of the toughest schools in England, parents told the Guardian the schools were run like military academies, with children being excluded for what they considered minor offences.
