Dear Achieving for Children,
I am writing to you to request information under the Freedom of Information Act.
Please tell me:
-How many pupils have received online tutoring at home that was paid for by the council between September 1 2017 and August 31 2018? Please indicate how many children were primary school age and how many children were secondary school age.
Note: I am requesting information relating to ALL children who receive some or all of their schooling at home. This would include those who are electively home-schooled, as well as those who have some or all of their classes at home as part of their mainstream schooling, or as part of alternative provision.
For these children, I am requesting information relating to online learning. This would include children who receive some or all of their tuition over Skype (or similar services), or using e-learning tutoring tools. It would include instances where the council has hired a member of staff specifically to carry out this online tuition, as well as instances where an external company is being paid to provide the service.
-Please provide the same information (total number of pupils, broken down by primary/secondary) for the same period (Sept 1 - Aug 31) for each of these years: 2016/17, 2015/16, 2014/15 and 2013/14.
-How much was spent on providing this online tutoring? Please provide the figure in pounds for each of the school years listed above (2013/14 - 2017/18), broken down by school year.
-Please provide the name(s) of the organisation(s) providing the online tutoring for home-schooled children.
Dear Ms Das,
Thank you for contacting the Freedom of Information team at Achieving for
Children. As our organisation provides children's services for three
boroughs (Kingston upon Thames, Richmond upon Thames, and Windsor and
Maidenhead), could you please clarify:
* whether you are seeking information regarding one, two, or all three
of the above boroughs (please specify which if not all three)
* if you are seeking information from more than one borough, whether
or not you would like the data to be provided separately for each
Please note that your request will be placed on hold until we hear back
from you with your preferences.
