The dad of a five-year-old boy permanently excluded from school feels he has been “thrown on the scrap heap.”

Cameron Steed admitted his son Logan’s behaviour was not always acceptable at Witham’s Powers Hall Infant School but believes there is little support to set him back on the right track.

Logan was expelled on November 13 after allegedly kicking a member of staff in the face.

His dad says he is yet to find out exactly what happened.

Despite having no behavioural issues at home, Logan was excluded up to ten times last year and up to five times this term.
