Please note that the data in response A and B represents all States of Jersey primary and secondary schools and all special schools. It does not include the private schools, Beaulieu Convent, De la Salle College and FCJ.
The data is presented in the academic year that the vandalism occurred and is limited to acts of vandalism only.
Minor instances of vandalism within schools are managed through general cleaning and maintenance work. Where maintenance is carried out internally in response to vandalism, the cost cannot always be quantified, and is often not recorded.

Due to the small number of young people prosecuted for malicious damage in schools, some data is considered disclosive, ie it may be possible to identify someone and / or learn something about them from the dataset. This information is therefore absolutely exempt under with Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. For this reason, any cell that represents fewer than five students has been denoted with ‘<5’.
Please note that the data in response C and D is presented in calendar years, and has been provided by the States of Jersey Police.
Please also note that the States of Jersey Police record offences under the term ‘malicious damage’ which includes vandalism but also reckless damage. For example, where a door was slammed in anger and the glass was broken as a result.
