What was the total cost to your council in the 2016/17 academic year of transporting children registered as living in your council's area by taxi to schools outside your council area and the numbers of children being transported?

Of these, without revealing any names or personal data, can you tell me furthest five distances travelled by taxi by these pupils and the transport costs to the council in 2016/17 of each?

Can you break the overall figures (both numbers of children and cost) down into two groups - children with special needs and deaf children - providing also the distances travelled by the five children in each group that travelled the furthest by taxi and the cost to the council of each?


The answer to your request is nil.  This is an islands local authority.
