Dear Ms Byrne,

 

Thank you for your email.

 

Schools are data controllers in their own right and so you will need to
request the information you require from Sywell Primary School.

 

To assist you, I have included a link to our schools directory where you

Dear Freedom of Information,
The problem is that the school does not have copies of all the minutes as the clerk has not provided them.

Yours sincerely,

Good morning Ms Byrne,

 

Thank you for your e mail below.

 

We have made enquiries with our Children’s directorate, they confirm that
any minutes will be held by the school. NCC do not any minutes from
schools.

 

Therefore you will need to contact the school directly

 

Kind regards

Dear Freedom of Information,

I don't think you understand the seriousness of this request. The school does not have the minutes because the meetings have not been minuted. They are breaching the code of conduct for governing bodies. I have taken it up with the school, the Chair of Governors and the Clerk to the Governors. The minutes simply do not exist. This is unlawful and someone in the County Council should be overseeing that these Bodie are following Government Guidelines. they have a public responsibility and as such should be held to account.

Yours sincerely,

Sonia Byrne

Dear Ms Byrne,

 

Thank you for your further email.

 

I do appreciate your frustration but am unable to carry out an internal
review of our reply advising you to contact Sywell Primary School as your
enquiry was not logged under the Freedom of Information Act.

 

The FOIA 2000 relates only to held and recorded information; if
information is not held or recorded, then our team are unable to assist.
Additionally, a request for information potentially held by a school falls
under their jurisdiction as a data controller registered with the
Information Commissioner’s Office in their own right. I note that you have
taken the matter up with the school, the Chair of Governors and Clerk to
the Governors but can only advise you to follow the school’s complaints
procedure.

 

If you wish to make a complaint about the school’s governing body, then
you can do so by contacting Sharon Muldoon, the Deputy Director of
Children’s Services, at [1][email address]

 

Kind regards
