Derbyshire County Council was the first in the Midlands to abolish fines for all but the worst offenders.
Furthermore, in 2015, Craig Langman from Nuneaton started a campaign asking for a change in the law for headteachers to be given discretion on the issuing of fines. His petition received 230,00 signatures.

The Department of Education says it has agreed in principal to the closure of Baverstock Academy in Birmingham.
The secondary school in Druids Heath was plunged into uncertainty in June 2016 because of financial difficulties.

Should the closure go ahead the school will close no earlier than 31 August 2017.
