FOI Request - Violence in Schools 2017/18 to 2019/20
Please provide the following information relating to violence against school staff.
How many incidents of violence against school staff were recorded in each of the 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic years?
• Please provide a breakdown of these numbers by school, and separately by age group.
Please also provide me with a month-by-month breakdown, beginning August 2018, of the following:
• Weapons used in schools that month
• Year groups affected that month
• Schools reporting incidents that month
• Number of incidents reported that month
Please submit it in the following format, or one similar:
Month Items Year groups Schools Incidents reported
Please find the requested information attached here, and see further notes below.
In accordance with section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, please note that it has not been possible to break the monthly figures down by weapon type.
Additionally, the numbers within the monthly breakdown by school and age were so few that disclosure could risk identifying individuals. This information is therefore exempt under section 38(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002; personal information.
