— = No exclusions.

* = One or two exclusions or a rate based on one or two exclusions.

Notes:

1. Includes maintained and non-maintained special schools.

2. The number of permanent exclusions expressed as a percentage of the number of pupils on the school roll (excluding dually registered pupils) as at January 2005.

3. In 2000/01,2001/02,2002/03 the numbers of permanent exclusions collected from schools via the Annual Schools’ Census (ASC) were known to have been under-reported and so have to be treated with some caution. As a result, a checking exercise was carried out—but this was at LEA level only. School level exclusion numbers or percentages shown here for 2000/01 are as reported In ASC. The reliability Indicator has been derived as follows:

Where number of exclusions returned via ASC, aggregated to LEA level <30:

If the confirmed number increased or decreased by more than five >>”SIGNIFICANT” change.

If the confirmed number increased or decreased by five or less >>”MARGINAL” change.

Confirmed number matches ASC number >>”ok”.

Where number of exclusions returned via ASC. aggregated to LEA level>=30:

If the confirmed number increased or decreased by more than 15 per cent. >>”SIGNIFICANT” change.

If the confirmed number increased or decreased by 15 per cent. or less >>“MARGINAL” change.

Confirmed number matches ASC number >>“ok”.

4. In 2003/04,2004/05 the numbers of permanent exclusions collected from schools via the Annual Schools’ Census (ASC) were known to have been under-reported and so have to be treated with some caution. As a result, a checking exercise was carried out—but this was at LEA level only. School level exclusion numbers or percentages shown here for 2000/01 are as reported in ASC. The reliability indicator has been derived as follows:

For each school type within an LA:

If the confirmed numbers increased or decreased by more than 10 >>“HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT” change.

If the confirmed number increased or decreased by more than five >>“SIGNIFICANT" change.

If the confirmed number increased or decreased by five or less >>“MARGINAL" change.

Confirmed number matches ASC number .>>“ok”.

5. This quality check is based upon LA level returns and so can only provide a broad indication of the reliability of individual schools’ figures.
