The increasing numbers of children and young people excluded from school have been seen largely as an education issue; concern has focused on the decision to exclude children or reintegrate them back into school. An alternative perspective is to consider how children can be maintained in school through early intervention and how other agencies can support such an approach.
Drawing on a national survey of SSDs, this publication examines what elected members and officers in social services departments and local education authorities, school personnel, children and parents found of value in a social work approach.
As Director of Research, Dr Ruth Sinclair developed and managed the extensive research and evaluation programme of NCB. Prior to this Ruth worked at Loughborough University and as Head of Research and Evaluation at Leicestershire Social Services Department. Ruth has many years experience in conducting research on and with children. She has a particular interest in children in public care or in receipt of social care and in children's participation in decision-making. She is also interested in developing child-centred research approaches that include the views and perspectives of children and involves them as widely as possible in all stages of the research process.
