Stephanie Comments on Bullying Exclusions

As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle on 9th August, Stephanie has commented on the news that exclusions for bullying have increased over the last year in Barnsley's schools.

In response to news that exclusions for bullying have increased by 18 per cent in Barnsley, Stephanie commented:

“No child should be forced to endure bullying at school, which can have devastating consequences on both their health and educational attainment.

“Schools should take appropriate action against bullying, and exclusions should be reserved as a last resort where other alternatives have been exhausted.”
