Ofsted carried out research in 29 schools, colleges and pupil referral units (PRUs) in London.

The research looked at 3 broad questions:

  1. What are schools, colleges and PRUs in London doing to safeguard children and learners from knife crime while on school premises?
  2. How are schools, colleges and PRUs in London giving children the knowledge and skills to stay safer in their local communities?
  3. How are exclusions being used when children bring knives to school?

We have released the provider level responses to the survey.
