Freedom of Information Request

FOI Education statistics

Received: 4 February 2021

I am writing to you, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, to request the following information from the Local Authority of Barnet. Please may you provide me with the following information listed below. We are particularly interested in understanding the impact of COVID-19 on education services.

* Number of initial requests for new EHC plans (education, health and care plans) on a monthly basis (Jan-2018 to Jan-2021) by source (e.g., mainstream schools, parents, LAs, etc.)
* Number of children and young people assessed following requests for EHC plans on a monthly basis (Jan-2018 to Jan-2021)
* Number of new EHC plans issued on a monthly basis (Jan-2018 to Jan-2021)
* Proportion of EHC plans issued within 20 weeks among all the EHC plans on a monthly basis (Jan-2018 to Jan-2021)
* Number of annual reviews for existing EHC plans undertaken on a monthly basis (Jan-2018 to Jan-2021)
* Number of placements made for pupils with EHCPs on a monthly basis (Jan-2018 to Jan-2021)
o Split the placements by school types, i.e. mainstream schools, maintained special schools, and independent and non-maintained special schools
o Split the placements by pupil's age
o Split the placements by annual fee range, i.e. below 20k, 20-50k, 50-80k, 80k and above
* Number of pupils with EHCPs who transferred from mainstream settings to independent special schools on a monthly basis (Jan-2018 to Jan-2021)

It would be great if you provide the data in the following form in an excel worksheet for each cut, with the example below being number of initial requests for EHC plans by source on a monthly basis

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact me via email and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request, my details are outlined below.
