Good progress has been made gathering evidence, including through a call for evidence which closed in May. This invited views and evidence from anyone with an interest in school exclusion. In total, the Department received over 900 submissions. Two thirds of submissions were from parents, with the remaining submissions from schools, teachers, local authorities and other interested individuals and organisations. Edward Timpson CBE has also chaired a series of roundtables and visited a number of schools, local authorities and other interested groups to discuss school exclusions.

The review remains in an evidence-gathering phase in the Autumn with Edward Timpson CBE expected to report by the end of the year.
