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
schools should consider how their personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) curriculum reflects local issues, including knife crime.
