The available information requested is shown in the table.

From 2002, the Department has carried out a checking exercise to confirm the overall number of permanent exclusions.

The latest data on exclusions were published in a Statistical First Release on 30 July 2009 at:

Milton Keynes local authority has no city technology colleges or academies. 4 The number of permanent exclusions expressed as a percentage of the number (headcount) of all pupils (excluding dually registered pupils) in January each year of the relevant school type. 5 Estimates based on local authority figures following a checking exercise to confirm the overall number of permanent exclusions in each local authority.
