This map was compiled by The Detail to show the number of suspensions and number of pupils suspended from 1,061 schools across Northern Ireland in the 2016/17 school year. Each suspension period can cover up to five days and some pupils will have been suspended more than once. Figures were provided by the Department of Education and only cover Years 1-12. The numbers in the red circles relate to the number of schools contained within each cluster. Click on the markers to zoom in and read the data for each individual school. An asterix denotes a figure less than 5. The department said that discipline policies and their application are typically not comparable between schools.
