Participation or Practice Innovation: Tensions in Inter-Agency Working to Address Disciplinary Exclusion from School
Stead, Joan; Lloyd, Gwynedd; Kendrick, Andrew
Children & Society, v18 n1 p42-52 Jan 2004
This paper explores dilemmas and tensions between two models of school based inter-agency meetings to prevent disciplinary exclusion from school. The first model is characterised by innovative practice developed through long established professional relationships and addresses both individual and strategic issues in supporting young people who are at risk of disciplinary exclusion from school. The second model strongly emphasises the right to participation of young people and their families in school based inter-agency meetings. Research participants in three Scottish councils (parents, pupils, teachers and other professionals) had identified school based inter-agency meetings as key to the process of inter-agency working to prevent school exclusion.
