Please also say whether the person committing the offence was a) teacher or b) pupil and whether the racism was against a) teacher or b) pupil. I would also be grateful if you could say the age and gender of the people involved if possible without breaching data protection rules. 

How many racist incidents reported in the last five years in schools resulted in action being taken by the school against the perpetrator (eg exclusion/ disciplinary action)? Please break this down by year and say what action was taken.
