Information requested

You asked for the following information in relation to question 15 of the Scottish Government's Educational Governance Review consultation:

  • How many of the 1,154 submissions to the Scottish Government's consultation, stated or agreed, that there should be further controls over funding at a school level?

  • How many of the 1,154 submissions to the Scottish Government's consultation stated that schools do not have enough control over funding?

  • How many of the 1,154 submissions to the Scottish Government's consultation inferred or raised concerns that schools do not have enough control over funding.

Response

All of the information you have requested is available from the following links:

Consultation responses: https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/empowering-schools/a-governance-review/consultation/published_select_respondent

An analysis of consultation responses: http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2017/06/6880

Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the websites listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy.

However, you may wish to note that the Education Governance Review consultation questions were open ended and we did not ask specifically for agreement/opposition with those ideas outlined in question 15. A numeric analysis of the consultation responses would therefore not be viable in this instance.
