More and more children are being criminalised, but what can schools do to try and prevent children from getting involved in crime and entering the criminal justice system?
Rod Morgan, former chair of the Youth Justice Board, believes schools need to reconsider excluding children, because if they're not in school, it can increase their likelihood of being involved in criminal behaviour.
Brislington Enterprise College in Bristol are trying to reduce the number of exclusions with a restorative justice approach, in which victims and offenders are brought together, with the conference counting towards local police crime targets.
See how the school works closely with its own policeman trained in the use of Restorative Justice, and discover how staff feel about violent pupils sometimes being allowed to stay in school.
