Previous years- This information is exempt under section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Excessive Cost of Compliance. Our reporting system (SEEMIS) is unable to provide reports on previous years data so we would have to go through the last 3 years class registers for each school which would exceed the time/cost limit.
