(4) What remedial actions were taken in each instance by the Education and Training Directorate to investigate, address and mitigate the repetition of these assaults.

(5) How many public schools are not recording assaults on teachers and school assistants.

Ms Burch: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

      •     'Admin' - refers to administrative staff and school assistants

The detailed analysis by teacher and school assistants, by gender and school network for each year is outlined below. School level data has not been provided as the low number of incidents at individual schools will lead to identifying individuals.
