Alix Hattenstone

Dear Norfolk County Council,

I would like to request a monthly breakdown of how many children have moved to full-time home education between January 2019 and present, broken down by ethnicity and age. I am referring to a formal, long-term move (informing a school or council) or a suspected move (indicated by long absences) rather than children who are still registered with a school but learning from home during lockdown.

I would prefer to receive this information electronically as data set in Excel or csv.

Many thanks,

Alix Hattenstone
