Dear Sir/Madam,

I have five questions, all concerning college expenditure in the academic year 2016-17. 

[1] How much money did the college spend on wages and equipment for the college nurse?
[2] How much money did the college spend on wages for the college counsellor?
[3] How much money did the college spend on mental health training for staff and students?
[4] How much money did the college spend on cash prizes and awards for students who achieved certain marks in end-of-year examinations? This includes scholars' prizes for attaining a first-class mark, Book Prizes for a high 2:i and any other cash prize paid to the student as a consequence of examination performance.
[5] How much money did the college spend on providing free alcoholic beverages to Fellows, students, conference guests, attendees of chapel services and any other persons? This includes wine, port, sherry and any other alcoholic beverage. 


Yours faithfully, 

Jay Richardson

Dear Jay Richardson

Our ref:f2018-028 expenditure on wine, scholarship awards and mental health support

Further to your FOI request, set out below, I am responding on behalf of Lucy Cavendish College as follows:

For the financial year 2016-17.

[1] How much money did the college spend on wages and equipment for the college nurse?

The College employs a College nurse on a part-time basis. The College nurse is not a Senior Officer of the College and therefore this request is refused on a section 40(2) exemption.

[2] How much money did the college spend on wages for the college counsellor?

This information is not held as the College did not directly employ a College Counsellor in 2016-17

[3] How much money did the college spend on mental health training for staff and students?

For the financial year 2016-17 £600 was spent on mental health training for staff and students.

[4] How much money did the college spend on cash prizes and awards for students who achieved certain marks in end-of-year examinations? This includes scholars' prizes for attaining a first-class mark, Book Prizes for a high 2:i and any other cash prize paid to the student as a consequence of examination performance.

The total for prizes for high achievement in examinations or other academic performance in 2016-17 was £4220

[5] How much money did the college spend on providing free alcoholic beverages to Fellows, students, conference guests, attendees of chapel services and any other persons? This includes wine, port, sherry and any other alcoholic beverage.

This information is not held.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint, you should write to me, at the address below.

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by the College. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
