Dear Belfast City Council,
I am looking for a list of all the primary schools in the Belfast City Council Area for research purposes. My company is looking to develop a learning platform to support ESL (english second language) students.
I would like for the list to contain the School Name, Address, Number of Students on roll, Head teacher's name and the number of ESL students.
If you have any questions before meeting my request, please feel free to contact me.
Dear Mr Jaworski
Thank you for your email dated 30 July 2018 requesting, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, information Belfast City Council schools.
I can confirm that Belfast City Council does not hold the information you have requested. This is because in Northern Ireland district councils, such as Belfast City Council, are not responsible for the provision of schools.
The Department of Education is responsible for schools in Northern Ireland. You may therefore wish to re-direct your request to the Department. Their e-mail address is [email address].
If you are dissatisfied with how the Council handled your request for information, you have the right to request that the Council formally review this decision. If you wish to do so, please write to the Records Manager, Chief Executive’s Department, Belfast City Council, City Hall, Belfast, BT1 5GS.
Should you remain dissatisfied following the Council's internal review, you can seek an independent review from the Information Commissioner. Requests for an independent review should be made in writing to: The Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. However, I would advise you that the Information Commissioner has indicated that a review will not be undertaken unless the Council has first had an opportunity to re-consider its decision.
