Can a new technique stem England’s rising tide of school exclusions?


A girl is studying quietly at a desk just outside the headteacher’s office at Gloucester academy. “Hi Freya, everything all right?” Ian Frost, the head, asks as he passes. The pupil gives a quick smile and nods before turning back to her exercise book.

Freya, 16, a year 11 student, has been having what she describes as “a bad week” and was disruptive in class. Now she’s in isolation for a day, but Frost has decided he wants to oversee her work rather than putting her in a room with other pupils who have been excluded from lessons.

“Mr Frost is a really understanding person,” says Freya, who’s been invited into his office to talk about how pupils’ behaviour has changed at Gloucester academy over the past two years. When Frost took up his post, in 2015, 10 headteachers had left in six years. During this time the school, where two-thirds of children claim free school meals, was placed in special measures.
