Dear Mr Sorrentino,


Further to your request for information about enforcement action please
find attached information as requested. There is very little data as
nearly all  breaches are managed through the use of informal action.
(Please see attached). 


I have also included  a link to the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC)
registers.  The enforcement only goes back five years: 
[1]  and there is no record of
enforcement against a school.  The prosecution register goes back further
and there is only one entry on that.


If you have any queries about this email please contact me within two
calendar months quoting reference 2018/19/58. If you are unhappy with the
service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request an review of our decision, you should write to the
Complaints Officer at the address below within 40 working days.  Our

Please be advised that your request and any other correspondence
associated with it will be retained until the time has lapsed for the
request to be closed.  Once the request is closed only anonymised data
