answer text <p> </p><p>The Department holds information collected by Southeastern about the level of demand on each of its routes. However, this data is held by DfT on a commercially confidential basis and so cannot be released. As part of its Long Term Planning Process, Network Rail will undertake a Kent Route Study during 2015/16 to identify which routes may require increased capacity provision. On the basis of this work, Ministers will consider priorities for funding capacity enhancements during railway Control Period 6 (2019-2024).</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Department for Education does not collect data on children missing education. Section 436A of the Education Act 1996 places a duty on local authorities to have arrangements that enable them to establish the identities of children in their area who are not registered pupils at a school, and are not receiving suitable education through a means other than at a school. Local authorities may decide as part of this duty to collect information on children who may be missing education or at risk of doing so. The Department's statutory guidance to local authorities advises that they must have robust procedures in place to fulfil their legal duty.</p><p>The 'lost pupils database' (LPD) records the transfer records of pupils whose correct destination is not known. Files are retained whenever a child leaves a school for a destination outside the maintained school sector. Examples of these destinations include ‘gone to an independent school', ‘gone sick', ‘moved abroad with parents' or 'moved on without reason'.</p><p>The LPD is not used by Children Missing Education (CME) officers to record CME data. The primary function of the Department's School to School (S2S) secure data transfer website is to provide schools and Local Authorities (LAs) with a mechanism for the secure and ongoing transfer of thousands of statutory child-level data files per week to new schools/LAs when children move school.<br><br>The details required for the Lost Pupil Database are:</p><p>File Name<br>Source school<br>Source LA<br>UPN<br>Surname<br>Forename<br>DOB<br>Gender<br>Former UPN<br>Former Surname<br>Middle Names<br>Ethnicity<br>FSM eligibility<br>In Care<br>Care Authority<br>SEN status<br>Start Date<br>Postcode<br>Sessions Possible<br>Sessions Attended<br>Sessions Unauthorised<br>First Language</p><p>LPD records are stored for a minimum of 12 months. The last ‘clear down' took place in October 2013 which means monthly additions are only held back to October 2012. At 1 February 2014, 15,128 records were held on the system. Records are not removed from the system until the general ‘clear down', so the figure does not represent pupils missing from education at any given time.</p>

Many of these incidents are dealt with very quickly with minimal disruption to the prison.</p>
