Thank you for your request for information received 08 July 2013. I
apologise for the delay in replying. In response to your request for
information officers have provided the following:
i) The total amount of funding the LA has received to pilot the children
and families SEN pathfinder and which agencies have provided this money.
* Money provided by DfE
* 2011/2012 - £75,000
* 2012/13 - £150,000 pathfinder grant
* 2013/14 - £150,000 Pathfinder grant +
£62,952 Pathfinder Champion grant
ii) A list of all of the internal budgetary codes used for this funding.
* Budget code 13483
iii) A list of every transaction against each of these codes since the

* See attached pathfinder transactions lists for 2011/12, 2012/13 and
2013 up to 30/06/13

* See attached pathfinder transactions spreadsheet.
* Working on the basis that the full Pathfinder Grants for 2013-14 have

total spend for 2013-14 up to 30^th June 2013 is £4,513.02 – leaving a
balance of £208,438.98 still to be spent. This of course only takes
account of transactions that have actually been posted up to 30^th
June, and does not reflect any transactions posted or purchase orders
raised after 30^th June, or planned expenditure for the rest of the
