Dear Mr Forbes,

 

Thank you for your information request of 13 January 2014.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

I would like information on the amount of pupils enrolled within Aberdeen
schools who do not speak English as a first language. If possible, I would
appreciate a breakdown by first language spoken.

There are 3,079 pupils enrolled in Aberdeen City Schools who do not speak
English as a first language. This figure is for Primary 1 – Secondary 6
and does not include Nursery pupils.

 

Please refer to the attached PDF for a breakdown of the first language,
FOI-14-0042 – First Languages.

 

Please note that ‘Not Disclosed’ means that the home language is not
English, but that the first language spoken has not been stated on the
school enrolment form.

 

ACC is unable to provide you with information on the first language spoken
where it has not been recorded as it is not held by ACC.  In order to
comply with its obligations under the terms of Section 17 of the FOISA,
ACC hereby gives notice that this information is not held by it. 

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Anna Buchan

Information Compliance Officer
