The information requested, regarding statistics showing excluded pupils who did not return to full-time education, is not held centrally. Local authorities are responsible for arranging suitable full-time education for permanently excluded pupils, which must begin no later than the sixth day of the exclusion.

Statistics on exclusions in academic year 2017/18 are not yet available. Exclusion statistics covering 2016/17 are available in the National Statistics release 'Permanent and fixed-period exclusions in England 2016 to 2017'.
