Freedom of Information Request

Staff / Teachers disciplinary

Received: 17 January 2024

Dear Sir/Madam, My name is Connor Hand and I am writing from LBC Radio in London. I hope you're well and thank you for your help in a recent FOI on temporary accommodation expenditure. I am writing with a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Specifically, I would like to ask the following: 1.Since the beginning of the academic year 20/21, how many teachers or other members of school staff have been suspended, disciplined and/or dismissed after being accused of having a sexual relationship with a pupil or making unwanted advances towards a pupil? If it does not exceed the cost threshold, please provide a breakdown for the number for teachers and other support staff. 2.Of those to have been suspended, disciplined or dismissed, how many cases resulted in a charge being brought against the teacher/member of support staff? 3.If it does not exceed the cost threshold, what percentage of schools in your area are state-schools which are overseen by councils, the percentage that are academy trusts, and the percentage which are independent schools. I am happy to discuss this further over the phone - my number is 07718084289 - and thank you in advance for your consideration.
