In order to improve the quality and usefulness of exclusions data, we have decided to collect exclusions data in a new way via the January Pupil-Level Annual School Census (PLASC). Although it is expected that these new data will be more useful to users, they will not be comparable with the old exclusions data. For this reason it has been decided that this report will be discontinued and replaced with a new report called 'Permanent and fixed-term exclusions from schools’ which will be based on the new data. It is due to be published in September 2015.
- In 2012/13 there were 99 permanent exclusions and 15,323 fixed-term exclusions.
- The rate of permanent exclusions (0.3 exclusions per 1,000 pupils) did not change between 2011/12 and 2012/13.
- The rate of fixed-term exclusions fell from 44.3 exclusions per 1,000 pupils in 2011/12 to 39.0 in 2012/13.
The data in tables 4 and 6 were revised on 5 March 2014 because of an error in the numbers of pupils in middle schools that were used to calculate the rates of fixed-term exclusions per 1,000 pupils.
