Dear Stirling Council,

I would be grateful if you could supply me with copies of all information you hold regarding engagement with ADES on the subject of the school starting age or deferral to starting school since July 2018. This should include, but not be limited to, advice and reports from ADES; agendas, minutes and papers of any meetings at which either or both of these issues were discussed; emails or other correspondence between the local authority and ADES.

Secondly, please can you advise if and how the council uses SIMD data in making discretionary deferral funding decisions.

Yours faithfully,

Patricia Anderson
