Response to supplementary questionnaire to review of elective home education

The request was successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I see from the DCSF response to an FoI request (www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/graham_badman_annex_and_local_au) that Swindon was one of 25 LAs that responded to a supplementary questionnaire sent by Graham Badman as part of his review of elective home education.

Please supply me with a copy of your response to the supplementary questionnaire. In case you require clarification of the questionnaire about which I am asking, it is included in DCSF's response to my earlier FoI request (see www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/badman_re....

Yours faithfully,

Shena Deuchars

Dear Simon,

The document you have sent me is the response to the original 6-question public questionnaire. There was a 60-question LA questionnaire that Swindon BC staff did not manage to answer.

DCSF has said (http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/gr...
All top tier local authorities (150) were sent the local authority questionnaire (Annex D of Graham Badman's report). 90 responses were received. A second questionnaire was sent to the 90 local authorities who responded to the first questionnaire, 25 of whom
responded. A list of the 25 local authorities is attached.

Swindon is in the list linked to by that message. It is the response to that second questionnaire that I am seeking. It asked about the number of children known to social care in the authority. A copy of the blank questionnaire can be found here: http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ba...

Yours sincerely,

Shena Deuchars
