Mayor launches first city-wide inclusion charter to keep kids in schools

The Mayor is launching London’s first city-wide inclusion charter to help tackle rising suspensions with thousands of children losing out on school learning.

It comes after the equivalent of 1430 learning days have been lost due to suspension or absenteeism in the capital alone, a 70 per cent rise on pre-pandemic levels.

18 boroughs are already signed up to the principles of the charter but the Mayor is calling on all schools and local authorities to sign up and take up the free offer of support.

I spoke to the director of London’s Violence Reduction Unit, Lib Peck, about the charter.

You can go to the London Assembly website for more details.
