attackWhat are the lawmakers doing to protect teachers from their students and deter violent children from attacking their teachers?

Increasing numbers of children in the first years of primary school are being suspended for attacking their teachers, shocking statistics show.

More than 4,000 children aged four to seven were sent home for violence against those teaching them last year, according to most recent figures.

Suspensions for attacks on teachers of Reception, Year One and Year Two classes rose by nearly 50 per cent in the last five years – with 20 pupils now being sent home every day over the issue.

In the 2008/2009 school year, just over 2,880 four to seven-year-olds were sent home for attacking their teacher – but that had jumped to 4,210 youngsters by 2012/13.

The figures, published by The Sun, lay bare the increasingly violent classrooms of England and Wales’ youngest schoolchildren.
