Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education effective September 2016

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear South Gloucestershire Council,
Please send me a copy of the Agreed Syllabus for RE that became effective in September 2016.
As I'm sure you are aware, this is a statutory document and, as such, it has crown copyright and should be publicly available.
Can you please advise why it is not available to download directly from your website?

Yours faithfully,

Christine Crosby

Marvre Scott, South Gloucestershire Council

Dear Marvre Scott,
The request has not been answered. You sent a link to a diocesan website where a .zip file could be downloaded but it needs a password to unlock it.
The syllabus is still not in the public domain despite being a statutory document.
Everyone has a right to be able to access this information freely.
It should be available from the council website.
Please comply with the law.

Yours sincerely,

Christine Crosby

Dear South Gloucestershire Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of South Gloucestershire Council's handling of my FOI request 'Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education effective September 2016'.

I was initially sent a link to a diocesan website where, for some reason, the syllabus is hosted. The document is password protected and you have not supplied the password.
I then complained and was sent two documents that have nothing to do with the South Glos syllabus.
After requesting an internal review I was sent a copy of an overview of the titles of the units of work. This is not the Agreed Syllabus.
By law, under all circumstances, the authority should have responded by now.
Please make this information available. It pertains to what is taught in South Glos schools and, as such, is a public document. There is no legal right to hide a public document from public scrutiny and it is not in the interests of parents or other stakeholders to have this information hidden away.
If I do not receive a satisfactory response I will take this up with the Information Commissioner's Office.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...

Yours faithfully,

Christine Crosby
