As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics. https://gov.wales/statistics-and-research

Exclusions

The way that exclusions data are collected has changed. These tables were based on data collected using the old method, so they will no longer be updated. Tables based on exclusions data collected using the new method will be released shortly.

The data relate to permanent and fixed-term exclusions of pupils of all ages from maintained primary schools, secondary schools, special schools and pupil referral units in Wales. An individual pupil may be excluded more than once. This includes only exclusions from schools within the local authority, as opposed to exclusions of residents who attend schools in other local authorities. Permanent exclusions only include those that have been upheld by the Governing Body's Pupil Discipline Committee. A single, main reason is given for each occurrence of exclusion.
