School governors were meeting last night to decide whether to confirm the permanent exclusion of a five-year-old boy. Ryan Harrison has already been temporarily excluded from Birchfield Primary School, Gildersome, Leeds, for allegedly biting another pupil - a charge his mother denies.

If permanently excluded, he would join the handful of other children at the very beginning of primary school whom teachers have decided are too disruptive to handle. Leeds City Council said the school's head had acted because of Ryan's "unacceptably aggressive behaviour".
