Student Engagement

Publication Details

These reports provide analysis of stand-downs, suspensions, exclusions, expulsions, and early leaving exemptions for students enrolled in state or state-integrated schools.

These reports are based on the Ministry's Stand-down and Suspension database, which was developed in July 1999, after the introduction of the Education (Suspension) Rules 1999. Since those regulations introduced stand-downs for the first time, statistics prior to mid-1999 are not comparable.
