You asked:

I would like the following information for the last four years i.e. 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, broken down by month if possible.

1. The number of reports of racism offences at schools. If possible, I would also like this information broken down by the ethnicity of the victim.

2. The number of reports of racism offences at nurseries. If possible, I would also like this information broken down by the ethnicity of the victim.

3. The number of arrests made because of racism offences at schools.

4. The number of arrests made because of racism offences at nurseries.

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Corporate Development Department of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.

I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.

The data in response to this request has been gathered from the central database crime, arrest and victim tables.

The criteria used for selection were that the crime was identified as racially motivated, and that the premise type contained the word "school"

The results of those searches are as below.

To note – there were no such offences recorded as being in nurseries so response to points 2 & 4 is nil.
