Maintaining children in school: The contribution of social services departments

Jeni Vernon and Ruth Sinclair

The 1990s have seen increasing concern about the numbers of children and young people being excluded from school.

Drawing on a national survey of social services departments, it looks at what members and officers in both social services and local education authorities, school personnel, children and parents found of value in a social work approach.
