Dear Ms Nicolson,

Thank you for your request for information.

We have completed a search of our records and can confirm the following:

Elective home education expenditure is currently commissioned by SCC from the Entrust who carry out the service.

In both 2013-14 and 2014-15 it was included on the section 251 statement under 'other alternative provision'.

The current budget for 2014-15 is £96,580. It is likely to continue into 2015-16 at a similar level as far as we know.
