Dear Newcastle upon Tyne City Council,

I am writing to request an internal review of Newcastle upon Tyne City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Education information'.

Dear Lily,

 

Further to your Freedom of Information request dated 27 September we are
contacting you for some more information.

 

We are well aware that this request is now overdue (and that you have
subsequently asked for an Internal Review), & we apologise for this.  The
team we originally approached for this data were unable to provide it,
however we did not find this out until the request was already overdue. 
We have approached another team, however they have asked us to clarify
some information in relation to the request.

 

Their query relates to your very first statement – ‘I write to ask you to
provide me with information regarding the education and school placements
given to children under 16 years of age with Special Educational Needs’. 
Obviously you will be aware that there can be different classifications in
respect of SEN (schools may classify less formally for example), so the
team was seeking to find out exactly which children & young people with
SEN you were seeking information about.  They would then be able to
formulate your response.

 

Once again apologies for the delay in you receiving your response, however
with your clarification the team will be able to begin to put your
response together.

 

Regards,

Louise

Dear foi people directorate,

Thank you for your message.

In response to your question, my request only concerns young people who have SEN statements or EHC plans.

I hope this clarifies my request and enables you to progress this as quickly as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Lily Kerrigan

Dear foi people directorate,

Please can you update on the progress of my request. It is long overdue and if i do not hear from you I will be forced to escalate this issue.
