Kent County Council

Dear Mr Brown

 

Although we have carried out an initial search to try and establish if
Kent County Council holds the information you have requested, we believe
that in its current form your request is too broad to enable us to provide
a comprehensive response.

 

Accordingly, please can you be more specific with the following:

 

Can you please confirm whether you require information on Kent independent
schools or all Kent independent schools including special independent
schools and non-maintained special schools?

 

The 20 working day timescale for providing the information you have
requested will be suspended until we receive clarification from you. On
receipt of the clarification we will inform you of the new latest complete
by date.

We look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Best regards
