School Suspensions

Suspension data is reported every school term.

Information about this data:

  • the average enrolment number is the average enrolments of students over the reporting period.
  • data in this report is sourced from the NT Department of Education's enrolment and attendance and behaviour data set.
  • np = not publishable as enrolments are less than 12 and/or the number of students suspended is less than 12.
  • data is current at the time of publication.
  • data on suspensions is subject to change. This data should be considered indicative only.
  • number of students suspended is the number of individual students that have been suspended. A student can be suspended more than once.
  • From the start of 2018, Rosebery Middle School and Palmerston Senior College were combined to form Palmerston College. During Term 2 2018, Malak Re-Engagement Centre changed its name to Top End School of Flexible Learning.

Suspension is focused on ensuring that the wellbeing and safety of students and staff is maintained, so learning can be conducted in a safe and supportive environment.

In addition to the Suspension Guidelines, schools have behaviour management policies and processes in place to deescalate negative behaviour, re-engage students and promote wellbeing. These have been developed in consultation with the school council or board to ensure that it is reflective of the school and its values.
