Our Response:

The minimum weekly cost for a residential children’s home for 2018/2019
was £2900 per week.

 

The maximum weekly cost for a residential children’s home for 2018/2019
was £5895 per week.

 

There are less than 5 children in SENDIS that fall under this category. 

 

Where an answer is 5 or less a response of “less than 5” has been
provided. This is due to the small numbers involved, which if revealed may
present a risk that the individuals concerned could be identified. As such
this is considered personal information and the exact figures are exempt
from disclosure under Section 40(2) (personal information) of the FOI Act.

 

 

If you have any queries or concerns about this please contact me.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request or wish to
appeal against the decision to exempt any part of your request, you should
request an Internal Review at [1][Merton Borough Council request email] or write in to Freedom
of Information team, Merton Council, Civic Centre, Morden, SM4 5DX.

 

If you escalate to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) without
following the council’s internal review process, the ICO will refer you
back to the council to enable the correct process to be followed.

you have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at:
