British schools send off 900 violent pupils each day

Saturday July 30, 2011 11:09:21 AM, IANS

London: Schools across Britain temporarily send off around 900 violent and foul-mouthed students every day, while 65 are permanently expelled every week, says a new official report.

The report for 2009-10 - published by the Department of Education - says school children were suspended on 166,900 occasions for assault or abuse - which is equivalent to 878 pupils a day.

Pupils were expelled on 2,460 occasions, the Daily Express reported.

The students were sent off for physical assaults against other pupils and adults, verbal abuse and threatening behaviour and racist abuse.

Children aged four and under were suspended from school 1,210 times in total, and were expelled 20 times. Five-year-olds faced 3,020 suspensions and 40 expulsions.

Across all of England's primary, secondary and special schools, boys were four times more likely to be expelled than girls, the report said.

Boys accounting for 78 percent of permanent exclusions.

The suspension rate was also three times higher for boys than for girls, with 75 percent.

In primary schools alone, 120 pupils were suspended every day, in secondaries 713 students, while in special schools, 45 pupils a day were suspended.

On 80,400 occasions, pupils were charged with physically assaulting an adult - including teachers, teaching assistants and others in the school - or a classmate.

There were 82,600 suspensions for verbal abuse or threatening behaviour against a pupil or adult, and 3,900 for racist abuse.

Schools Minister Nick Gibb said: "With thousands of pupils being excluded for persistent disruption and violent or abusive behaviour, we remain concerned that weak discipline remains a significant problem in too many of our schools and classrooms."

"We have already introduced a series of measures to put head teachers and teachers back in control of the classroom - including clearer guidance and increased search powers.
