Good afternoon,

The following is a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I am requesting:

1) As of 31/12/2020, how many young people had Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs)?
2) As of 31/12/2021, how many young people had Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs)?
3) As of 31/12/2021, how many young people with an EHCP were placed in provision in the boundaries of a different local authority?
4) In reference to the figure provided in response to question (3), please break the figure down by local authority
5) As of 31/12/2021, how many young people in receipt of SEND transport funded by the local authority were taken to their education setting on their own (i.e. they are the only young person) in a taxis

I would like to receive the information electronically in a spreadsheet.

If the decision is made to withhold some of this information using exemptions in the Act, please inform me of that fact and cite the exemptions used.

If you need clarification please contact me at this email address. Under your section 16 duty to provide advice and assistance I would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any way before the 20th working day.

Thank you for your time,

Dear FOI team,

The council has failed to reply to my FOI “EHCPS and SEN transport” within the statutory time limit. Can you please provide an update as soon as possible.

Dear Lydia,

Thank you for providing me with the data requested.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Lydia,

Would it be possible for you to provide me with the names of councils for question4, rather than their codes? This is to make sure that we avoid any misunderstandings/confusion over what LAs each code refers to.

Yours sincerely,
Gareth

Good afternoon,

I am emailing in relation to request 831507.

I'm concerned that some of the information provided to me is incorrect.

Your response to question (3) was '23'

In terms of question (4), there are two issues:

Firstly, the total of out of area placements in (4) is 37 (when it should be the same as in question 3).

Secondly, you have provided codes rather than names of local authorities. For absolute clarity, please provide the name of the local authorities.

If you could respond to this message as soon as possible that would be appreciated,

Yours sincerely,

Gareth Davies
