'Too many vulnerable children are falling through the gaps' as school exclusion rate for Cambridgeshire is revealed
Children in care are six times more likely to be excluded from school in Cambridgeshire, new figures reveal.

Department for Education figures show 10.7 per cent of children in the care of Cambridgeshire County Council were excluded at least once in the 2016-17 academic year, the latest period with available data.
