Key points:

  • Children who are outside of mainstream education are more vulnerable to becoming the victim of childhood criminal exploitation.
  • Children who have experienced exploitation will be more vulnerable to exclusion and may be disproportionately impacted by exclusion.
  • Existing evidence and evidence from Just for Kids Law's casework suggests that some behaviour that leads to exclusion can be orchestrated by criminal actors as a part of furthering that child’s exploitation.
  • In its rewrite of the statutory guidance, the Department for Education (DfE) should include provisions that mitigate the risk that victims of exploitation will be excluded and protect the children most vulnerable to exploitation in the future.
