Where there are blanks in the above table, this is where information is not held by Devon County Council because the schools manage this data themselves and set their own criteria. Individual Devon schools contact details are provided.
Where the symbol * is used we hold the information but as disclosure may identify individual(s) and therefore breach their rights and the principles of the Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation, we consider the information to be exempt under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 40(2) – ‘Personal Information’.
