Knife crime: safeguarding children and young people in education. Lessons from London (Ofsted)

New knife crime research looks at how schools, colleges, and pupil referral units (PRUs) in London protect children from knife violence in school and makes recommendations.

The research found that while schools need to keep children safe, they do not have the ability to counter the complex societal problems behind the rise in knife crime. These need to be addressed by a range of partners including the police, local authorities and policy makers.
