Primary exclusions on rise
THE number of children excluded from Neath and Port Talbot primary schools has increased.
According to a new council report, the figure went from four in 2010/11 to five in 2011/12.
The report, which will go before councillors on Thursday, states: "Although small numbers, there has been an increase in recent years."
Members of the Children, Young People and Education cabinet board will be told meetings had taken place with head teachers to look at alternatives to exclusion and reducing the periods of exclusion.
