Disclosure of the names of the schools and the ages of the child may identify individuals and therefore we consider the information to be exempt under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 40(2) Personal Data. This also applies to the number of exclusions in 2017 – 2018, and the reasons where we have used the * symbol.
