This is really scary and the statistics are only for Denbighshire Council Schools, however, someone is going to do one for Conwy Council.
Also, the statistics show that the incidents are rising quite sharply. I think more and more people will avoid training as teachers and the profession is going to struggle to recruit.
This information is from a FOI request, but also this article is an eye-opener!
