Why is the Drawn In Pledge important?
There is some evidence that excluding children is being used as a tool for improving a school’s results. Some schools appear to be parking, moving or removing children whose potential results are likely to bring down the overall school performance.
In many cases this is not overt. Tactics are used which make the school less appealing to some groups – so they ‘opt’ to go elsewhere.
But not all schools. There are many schools who achieve good results with an inclusive approach to a diverse intake. This is a pledge that these schools – and the individuals within them – can make easily. In pledging we stand up to say that inclusion is not over.
