The National Behaviour and Attendance Review (NBAR) in Wales: Findings on Exclusion Set in Context
Reid, Ken
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v14 n1 p3-17 Mar 2009
The National Behaviour and Attendance Review (NBAR) was a comprehensive review of behaviour, exclusions and school attendance in Wales, commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government. The Review's Steering Group started its work in 2006 and produced its final report in 2008. This article focuses on the Review's study of exclusions of children from Welsh schools and sets its findings in the context of other recent work in this area. The NBAR found uneven patterns of exclusions across local authorities and between different schools. It accepted the need for exclusions but felt that too many occurred that might have been avoided. Core recommendations are listed, including proposals for the appeals process, better assessment of excludees' needs, the wider use of "managed moves" and a call for further investigation of the links between learning difficulties and exclusions.
