Dear Jessica

 

I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by the
Authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000:

 

Could you please send me the following data in a spreadsheet format.

I would like to know the number of EAL Children at secondary schools in
the last 2-3 years.

     I would like to know:

     1.Ethnicity

     2,gender

     3.country they came from

     4. how long they plan to stay

     5. reason for coming to the uk

 

Please see response below:

 

See attached we can’t answer q4 and 5 as we are not required to collect
this data.

 

DFE Rounding conventions – Looked after children.

Rounding and suppression is applied to the data. The National Statistics
Code of Practice requires that reasonable steps should be taken to ensure
that all published or disseminated statistics produced by the Department
for Education protect confidentiality. National and regional figures have
been rounded to the nearest 10 and Local Authority figures have been
rounded to the nearest 5. For confidentiality purposes, numbers from one
to five inclusive have been replaced in the published tables by a cross
(x). To ensure the suppressed number cannot be identified by simple
arithmetic secondary suppression may be required. In these cases, another
number may be suppressed. Where any number is shown as zero (0), the
original figure submitted was zero (0). The following convention has been
used:

”.” means not applicable

“-” means negligible – used to represent a percentage below 0.5%

Percentages have been rounded to whole numbers but where the numerator was
five or less or the denominator was 10 or less, they have been suppressed
and replaced by a cross (x). Note that percentages may not sum to 100 due
to rounding.

 

 

If you have any information which may assist us in determining or locating
any missed information, we would be grateful if you would contact us with
details of this information, so that we can conduct a further search.

 

If you are not satisfied with the response you may ask for an internal
review.  If subsequently you are not satisfied with the Council's decision
you may apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision.  Generally,
the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the complaints
procedure provided by the Council.  The Information Commissioner can be
contacted at the following address:
