From 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2016 there were 272 children admitted into looked after care in Moray. A small number were repeats admissions.

 

Dispersion throughout Moray according to ASG (Associated Schools Group)

 

ASG 2015 2016
Forres ASG, covers Forres, Findhorn and Kinloss 11% 13.5%
Elgin – covers both ASGs for Elgin High and Elgin Academy 38.5% 35%
Buckie 8.5% 14%
Out of Moray placement 23% 18%

 

Other areas of Moray have not been included as numbers are as low as 1%, which could identify individuals and is therefore exempt under section 38(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, personal information.
