Dear Ms Redfellow

 

Thank you for your request for information.  Please see below our
response.

 

Since the introductions of Education, Health and Care Plans, please
detail:

 

1) How many requests have been made for an EHCP assessment by people with
Learning Difficulty Assessments?

Less than 5

2) How many assessments have been made?

               Less than 5

3) How many EHCPs have been issues as a result of those assessments?

               0

Please note that information on figures fewer than 5 have been withheld.
This is because the numbers are so low that it is possible that those who
already know, or can deduce, the identities of those concerned would learn
facts about them that it would be unfair for the council to disclose. As
such we are withholding this information under section 40 (2) of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 which exempts personal information from
disclosure if disclosure would breach one or more principles of the Data
Protection Act 1998. In this case we consider that disclosure would breach
the first principle, namely that personal information must be fairly and
lawfully processed and must meet one of the conditions for processing as
provided by schedule 2 of the Act. In this case we consider that the
disclosure would be unfair and unlawful and none of the conditions for
processing would be met.

 

I have attached a copy of the appeals procedure for your information.

 

Regards
