Exclusions from Schools, 2009/10
Statistics on exclusions from schools in Wales include data for Wales for the past ten academic years, from 2000/01 to 2009/10, and for England and Scotland for the academic year 2008/09. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 30 March 2010.
The key points from the latest release are:
- In 2009/10 there were 185 permanent exclusions, a decrease from 213 in 2008/09;
- The highest rate of permanent exclusions from maintained secondary schools, 1.9(r) exclusions per thousand pupils, was seen in Cardiff(r); Wrexham, Ceredigion and Monmouthshire reported no permanent exclusions;
- Being transferred to a Pupil Referral Unit was the most frequently-used alternative educational provision provided to those permanently excluded from school, while being transferred to a mainstream school continues to be the second most common provision;
- The total number of fixed-term exclusions has fallen slightly to 18,278.
(r) Revised on 11 March 2011.
The data in Table 3 for Cardiff Local Authority were revised on 11 March 2011 due to an error found in their original data submission. The error involved incorrectly recording 12 permanent exclusions as being in the primary sector instead of the secondary sector, therefore the sector level data for Wales in Table 1 was also revised.
The rate of permanent exclusions for secondary schools in Table 1 has been revised from 1.0 to 0.8 per 1,000 pupils on 15 August 2011 due to an error in the original calculations. The rate was correctly published as 0.8 per 1,000 pupils in Table 3. The actual number of exclusions is not affected by this error.
