The Children’s Commissioner’s Office (CCO) has long been concerned with the high numbers of children being excluded from mainstream schools, including those with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Consequently, the CCO deemed it important to hear directly from children themselves, particularly as there is a gap in existing research of qualitative research with children and young people about these issues. The aim of this research was to gain a better understanding of the lived experiences of children excluded, both officially and unofficially, from mainstream education.
