FOI Request - Discipline for Mobile Phone Use
To ask on how many occasions a pupil has been disciplined in relation to mobile phone use in school in the last three years, in your area.
Could this be broken down by i) year and ii) on how many occasions types of disciplinary action were taken (eg 4 suspensions, 2 written warnings, 5 verbal warnings).
I do not need an individual breakdown of schools.
The schools hold reports of any incidents in each child's PPR (Pupil's Personal Record). As they do not hold an overview, they would have to go into each child's PPR to get this information. We estimate that the cost of complying with your request would exceed the cost of £600.00 which is the limit specified by the Scottish Ministers in Scottish Statutory Instruments, 2004 numbers 376 and 467. If the cost of complying with a request is higher than £600.00 we do not have to supply the information under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Excessive Cost of Compliance.
