How many children were recorded as missing from education in the academic year 2016/2017, in your local authority?
(If possible can we have the figures for the academic year, if this is not possible then please provide the information however you hold it.)
2. Of the children recorded as missing from education during this period, how many were in receipt of free school meals, when last on a school roll?
3. Of the children recorded as missing from education during this period, how many were known to social services?
4. Please give any other relevant information or comments.
These figures exclude enquiries from other local authorities about children who may have moved from their area to ours.
Some children may be reported missing more than once in a financial year so the number of actual instances would be higher than 424.
