In your answer can you please provide figures for secondary schools and primary schools separately.

Can you also specify whether the knife was found to be in the possession of a boy or girl and their age, or neither (ie discarded on school premises).

How many injuries have been caused by knives or similar offensive weapons in secondary schools and primary schools in the same period. Can you specify the age of the victim and whether a pupil or a teacher, or visitor to the school.

In how many of these has the victim required hospital treatment. Can you specify the age of the victim and whether a pupil or a teacher, or visitor to the school.

How many pupils have been excluded for possession or use of a knife on school premises in each year from 2013 to present?

How many times have police been called to schools to deal with incidents involving pupil behaviour in each year from 2013 to present?

If this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful of you could contact me as I understand that under the act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.

Our response

I have been informed by the Education Department that we do not hold this
information centrally. I have been advised that this information would be
retained within the individual schools and therefore, you will need to
contact each school directly. I have attached the schools contact details
for information.

 

Please note, the schools are data controllers in their own right and are
therefore responsible for their own information.

 

Kind regards
