Prisons fall short on performance targets

The Prison Service has failed to meet six of its 15 key
performance indicators, according to a Prison Reform Trust

Assault rates were well above the 9 per cent target rate, with
the highest rates recorded in male juvenile establishments (60.5
per cent), followed by male closed young offender institutions
(30.2 per cent).

Another key target was to ensure prisoners spent on average at
least 24 hours per week engaged in purposeful activity, including
education, training, resettlement, rehabilitation activities,
sports and visits.

This year, prisoners spent an average of 23.4 hours each week
doing purposeful activity.
