Schools—assaults(Question No 461)

Mr Doszpot asked the Minister for Education and Training, upon notice, on 5 August 2015:

(1) How many public school teachers and school assistants, by gender and school, have recorded incidents of being assaulted in the course of their employment for each of the years (a) 2012, (b) 2013, (c) 2014, and (d) 2015 to date.

(2) How many of these assaults were made known through the (a) Accident Incident Reports recording system, (b) Riskman recording system and (c) MAZE recording system.

(3) How many of these assaults were reported to the police.

(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:

(1) The records of being assaulted by a person or persons, predominantly relate to students hitting teachers and school assistants. The definition of “assault” is when contact is deemed to be intentional.

‘Teachers’– refers to teachers and school leaders

‘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.
