Pupil data: Learner Records's Service breach investigation

Jen Persson made this Freedom of Information request to Education and Skills Funding Agency

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for Jen Persson to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Education and Skills Funding Agency,

In January 2020, Schools Week reported that The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) had begun an investigation after betting companies were “wrongly provided access” to data from the Learners' Records Service.

Re: https://schoolsweek.co.uk/esfa-launches-...

Please can you provide a copy of the investigation findings, and treat this request for information under the FOI Act 2000.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Jen Persson

Dear Education and Skills Funding Agency,

having received your reply today, to my FOI request made on 30 December 2020 re Pupil data: Learner Records's Service breach investigation, please can you re-consider your response.

The online link to the executive summary of the ICO general audit of the Department for Education in 2020 does not supply the information requested, nor does it comply with your obligations under the Act to state whether the information is held and has been refused, or withheld under which sections of the Act, or if you have determined it is exempt on what grounds.

To clarify, please can you provide a copy of the ESFA investigation findings.

Thank you for your consideration.
