1 Identified by Standard Occupational Classification (SOC2000) code 0002 'Student'.

2 Injuries are reported and defined under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995. These include injuries to employees, self-employed people and members of the public (including students). The information available under RIDDOR 95 includes two categories of severity for members of the public: fatal injuries and non-fatal injuries that cause a person to be taken from the site of the accident to hospital.

3 The annual basis is the planning year 1 April to 31 March.

The original answer was incorrect because of an administrative error. Instead of information on children aged from one to 18 being reported, information on children aged one or 18 was supplied, thereby omitting information on those aged between two and 17.
