3) Total number of pupils excluded

4) Of this total:
- Number of boys
- Number of girls
- Number of non-binary pupils

Dear The Morley Academy,

I am writing with regard to the above FOI request to remind you that you are legally required to respond within 20 working days, which in this case should have been by 2 December 2020.

Please could you issue your response ASAP?

When doing so, please make sure:

a) to include all of the requested information for each of the three time periods listed in the original FOI request (Sept 2019 - Mar 2020; April 2020 - July 2020; Sept 2020 - Present), rather than overall

b) to indicate how many of each *type* of exclusion (permanent, fixed-term, internal) there were during each time period

Thank you in advance; I'll look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,
