Suspensions and expulsions in NSW government schools (2005-2021)

This dataset provides information on short suspensions, long suspensions and expulsions in NSW government schools.

Data Notes:

  • From 2021, the Department will publish both semester 1 and full year factsheets. In previous years, only a full year factsheet was produced. Please note that semester 1 and full year data is not comparable, as students suspended in both semesters are only counted once in the full year publication.

  • Data in 2020 and 2021 is not comparable to previous years due to the impact of Covid 19.

  • ABS Statistical Area 4 (SA4) boundaries in NSW are combined into 11 groups for reporting of suspensions data from 2019. From 2013 to 2018, data was published by Family and Community Services districts.

  • To protect individual students’ identities, values under 5 are represented as <5 and n/a is used in the “total” column.

  • Refer to the individual publications for further information and policy context.

Data Source:

  • Learning and Wellbeing, NSW Department of Education.
