Student Engagement: Stand-downs
Schools must effectively involve students in learning to ensure educational success. Stand-downs, suspensions, and exclusions help provide indications of where engagement in productive learning may be absent and behavioural issues may be present. Stand-downs, suspensions and exclusions are not measures of student behaviour but measures of a school's reaction to behaviour. What one school may choose to suspend for another may not.
stand-downs The baseline number of stand-downs, is how many cases would have occurred if the national rates for each age group were applied to the school or region. Baseline numbers are not a desired number of cases nor are they a projection. See ‘Technical Notes/Definitions’ for more information.

- Age standardised rate is ‘observed’/’baseline’*’national rate per 1,000’. Care should be taken when examining age-standardised rates, especially in the cases when small numbers are involved. For more information on age-standardisation see the Technical Notes/Definitions tab.
- International fee paying students, adult students (age 19+), and private students are excluded.
- ‘x’ = less than 5 students in the denominator for this category, or if left unmasked the data may lead to deducing other masked values.
- Ethnicity is prioritised. MELAA (Middle Eastern, Latin American, and African) students are included with ‘Other’.
