Dear Mr Davies

Thank you for your email.

In your request you asked for a spreadsheet with email addresses. I have explained in the letter of response why the email addresses are not provided.

Dear Karon Crew,

While I understand the need for personal email addresses to remain secure, can you add the business email addresses i.e. where the email address contains the name of the setting?

Yours sincerely,

Michael Davies

Dear Mr Davies

Thank you for your email.

When a provider registers with Ofsted we need to correspond with the ‘registered individual’ who represents the provider, and on this basis they provide us with their contact details. For many of these individuals we do not hold an email address as this is not their preferred method of contact. For those that do provide us with an email address it is solely for the purpose of us contacting them about the registration, and they would therefore have no expectation that we would share their email address more widely without their consent. In addition even if their email address appears to be linked to a ‘business account’ we have no way of knowing if this is a business email or an account used solely by an individual for their personal correspondence. It would not be fair for us to disclose these email addresses to the public at large when the individuals who have provided them to us would not expect us to do this, and may have declined give their email address details if they knew they would effectively be published as a contact for a registration.

I hope this clarifies why we are unable to provide you with this information.

Regards
