Dear Sara Gordon,

Regarding Q 5 a) & b).

Could this information be gotten through the SEN dept via the statements rather than from transport - as don't children who are awarded transport have it included on the statement?

Yours sincerely,
Ms Maher

Dear Sara Gordon,

Please could you respond to my last message dated 23rd February 2015.

Ms Maher
