Dear Ms Nicholson

Request for Information – reference RFI - ENQ02324-REQ001

Thank you for your request for information received on the 4th August 2014 .

The Freedom of Information Act requires public bodies to confirm or deny whether they hold information meeting the description set out in a request for information.

Wiltshire Council has completed its searches but determines that it does not hold the information described in your request. I am advised by our Children and Families Department, who have responsibility for all children's education functions within the authority, that there is no budget specifically allocated for elective home education,

If you are unhappy with this result, you can raise a complaint under the council’s Review Procedure for Information Requests (enclosed) within 40 days of receiving the information. When you have exhausted the council’s procedure you can contact the Information Commissioner’s Office at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, www.ico.gov.uk or 01625 545745. If you would like to discuss any of the information provided to you or would like further information on the review procedure, please contact me.
