Dear Freedom of Information,

Many thanks for your speedy reply.
Good question. The dates I would be interested in would be the most recent 3 years that you hold figures for, so for example: during the last academic years of 2013/14, 2014/2015 and for 2015/16 the figures that you hold so far (if this is not possible then please include the academic year of 2012/13).

Thanks again

Yours sincerely,

Sasha Sumner

Many thanks for looking into this for me.
Do you know who or what organisation would hold this information?

Yours sincerely,

Dear Ms Sumner

 

FOI Request ref: 6819 / Attendance in Secondary schools

 

Further to my email of 4/3/2016, Children’s Services have now provided me
with a response to your follow up request.

 

While East Sussex County Council hold attendance data for pupils, we don’t
have any centralised record of which pupils suffer from depression in
order to provide this information. You may be able to request the
information from Health Services, such as CAHMS, but Children’s Services
think it is unlikely they will hold the information too.
