Request for details of Educational policy relating to non-magical background children

The request was refused by Downworld Cabinet.

Dear Downworld Cabinet,

Please treat this as a Freedom of Information request.

I would like information about the educational policy relating to the schooling of children from non-magical backgrounds.

In particular, please supply me with:

1. The number of non-magical background children admitted to schools in the past 5 years
2. What prerequisite talents must manifest before a child can be considered
3. Information on refusal of magical education by non-magical parents

This may include, but should not be limited to, statistics and other materials such as reports, spreadsheets, and relevant messages sent via tools such as email, WhatsApp, Slack, Yammer, or Signal.

I am interested in all relevant recorded information dated from June 2015 to November 2020.

I would prefer to receive information in a machine readable format, such as CSV files for data. I would prefer not to receive information in pdf format files.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours faithfully,

Jen Bramley

S T John, Downworld Cabinet

Dear Ms Bramley,

Warlocks are trained by their own kind and we do not have...schools. We do not mix often with mundanes and our training courses are rigorous apprenticeships. I am loathe to reveal the number of warlock children currently in training or have previously been trained - we guard our own.
