(ie there were XXX amount of children in East Devon being treated in 2017 ‘ XXX were in Sidmouth, XXX were in Honiton etc) I would also like to know how many children there were in Devon in the past five years.
(i.e.there were XXX children in Devon in 2017, XXX children in 2016)
Devon County Council participates in the National Child Measurement Programme(NCMP) which measures children’s height and weight and calculates their Body Mass Index, which is shared with parent/carers. It is not a treatment programme.Information about healthy lifestyles is provided with the results letter and parents may discuss any concerns with their GP or school nurse.
Please could I have these broken down into districts first and then into areas/towns/villages and years for just North and East Devon.
(ie there were XXX children in East Devon being treated in 2017 ‘ XXX were in Sidmouth, XXX were in Honiton etc)
Please see the answer to the previous question.
I would like to know how many children have been taken into care because they are obese in the last five years in Devon please?
Children may be taken into care for a single reason or for multiple reasons. Obesity as a factor is not recorded separately and cannot be reported on separately. Free text parts of hundreds of cases would have to be examined manually to identify if obesity was a factor in taking a child in care and even if each one only took ten minutes the time necessary would be in excess of eighteen hours and therefore we are exempting disclosure under Section 12 of the Freedom of information Act 2000 – Cost of Compliance.
Please could I have the statistic broken down into district first (ie there are XX amount of children taken into care in Devon in 2017. XXX were in East Devon, XXX amount are in North Devon etc) . Then please could I have the numbers broken down further into areas/towns/villages and years for North and East Devon districts.
(ie there were XXX amount of children taken into care for obesity in East Devon in 2017 ‘ XXX were in Sidmouth, XXX were in Honiton etc)
Please see the answer to the previous question. The information may also be exempt under the Freedom of Information Act Section 40 Personal Data as disclosure may identify individuals.
