This does not include attendance management and performance management related figures.2. The figures for ‘removed from duty’ include 64 staff who were suspended and 91 who were dismissed. The dismissed figure is not included in the ‘staff disciplined’ category.3. Out of the 64 staff suspended, some staff were subsequently dismissed and are included in the 'dismissed' figures. The remaining staff either received a disciplinary outcome less than dismissal e.g. first formal warning, final formal warning and penalty short of dismissal or are still on suspension pending the outcome of the investigation.
