The accompanying table provides the numbers of exclusions in academies and other state-funded schools in England in academic years 2014/15 to 2016/17, and the percentage of the total in academies.

Table 14 of the ‘National tables’ data can be found within the ‘Permanent and fixed-period exclusions in England 2016 to 2017’ release. This table includes information on exclusions in academies and other state-funded schools, including exclusion rates. The full release is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/permanent-and-fixed-period-exclusions-in-england-2016-to-2017.

Earlier publications in the series have the equivalent information for earlier years, found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-exclusions.

It is important to only consider the context of schools when assessing the percentage of exclusions. At the end of 2017, around 1 in 10 sponsored academies were Good or Outstanding before they converted, compared to almost 7 in 10 after they became an academy (where an inspection has taken place).
