Response 05-11-2013

This information is readily available and is therefore exempt under Section 25 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  The information requested can be found here

The information for the school year 2012/13 is currently being processed and is unavailable at this time.  Should you wish to have this information, we can provide this to you by 30 November 2013.  Please let us know if you would like the information for the school year 2012/13.

The information we have provided can not be broken down into any more detail, as that data would have the potential to identify individual pupils.  We follow the code of practice used by The Scottish Government when issuing statistical information.  Numbers of less than 5 are deemed to be disclosive and are therefore not published.  We have therefore provided summary information in order to answer your questions, and trust you will find this helpful.
