Volume 485: debated on Thursday 18 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) what estimate he has made of the number of physical attacks against people working in education in 2008; (243270)

(2) how many teachers working in (a) the Ribble Valley, (b) Lancashire and (c) England were subject to physical attack in the workplace in 2008.

The requested information is not collected centrally.

Information about the number of permanent and fixed period exclusions as a result of a physical assault against an adult was published in Statistical First Release (SFR) 14/2008 "Permanent and Fixed Period Exclusions from Schools in England 2006/07", available on my Department's website:
