Schools and Knife Crime

Ofsted has published findings from a research project into knife crime and safeguarding children and young people in education in London.

Recommendations from the research in 29 schools, colleges and pupil referral units (PRUs) include: local community safety partnerships should involve schools in developing and implementing strategies to address serious youth violence; the Department for Education (DfE) should collect data about the managed moves of children between schools; safeguarding partners should involve schools in assessing and responding to local needs; schools should share full information with one another when children move between education settings; and schools should consider how their personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) curriculum reflects local issues, including knife crime.
