The Prisons and Probation Ombudsman investigates all deaths in custody and publishes full reports on each. You can find out more and download specific reports at:
http://www.ppo.gov.uk/investigating-fata...
The PPO does not publish individual names but just refers to the person.

I'm interested in this FOI request, because I am aware that a lot of Asperger Syndrome people end up in prison, and I have discovered that there is a scheme that enabled special schools to take the pupils into prisons for PE lessons, and this has been done without the permission or knowledge of some of the parents.

To Barbara:
Many prisons have good gym facilities. I think the prison you are referring to is a low category prison. The children would have had no contact with prisoners. It is a way of sharing facilities with the community.

With reference to the PPO; the site can be searched for individual prisons to check for the number of 'fatal incidents' an any particular prison.

Sorry to have to correct you Paul but the prisoners were actually put in charge of the children, and I know that because my son was one of the children concerned, he was taken to a prison for PE lessons without my knowledge or consent, and I really don't care wether the facilities at the prison were excellent or not, thats irrelevant because the children were only allowed to use balls and benches anyway, and they already had those at the school, so I really have no idea why he and his classmates were being taken to a prison without the parents knowledge or consent, and I have made this FOI to try to find that out.

Sorry, I have made a mistake, I thought this FOI was the one I had made.

Barbara.
I wasn't aware of that and am very surprised. I would have expected parents to be asked for permission.

We weren't, and if I had been I would have refused. I'm trying to find out what the scheme was was called, because I now know it wasn't just happening at my sons school, it was some sort of a government scheme.
