In response to your request received by us on 26th June 2019, for information under the Freedom of

16th January 2019

Please find attached the agenda, minutes, action trackers and Principals report for all the above
meetings. In addition to this we have provided the supporting papers for agenda items, which vary
for each meeting.
For all the above meeting dates, the agenda includes a confidential item for Human Resources
Updates, which are deemed as confidential by the TMB, due to the personal information of
individuals and job roles are detailed. Therefore the details covered by this agenda item are not
disclosed under: Section 40 (1) Personal Information of the FOI Act 2000.
There is information about staff and personnel issues relating to staff and we have considered the
application under the FOI Act, Section 40 Personal Information exemption in order to avoid breaching
data protection principle legislation.
Three further redactions have been made to the documents:
• In the Principal’s Report of 28th November 2018, details of a bullying incident have been
removed where disclosure of these details might make the child or children identifiable.
• In the Principal’s Report of 26th March 2019, examples of pupil illnesses have been removed
where disclosure of a category of sensitive information would be prejudicial to the rights and
freedoms of the child or children.
• In the Principal’s Report of 14th May 2019, details of a bullying incident have been removed
where disclosure of these details might make the child or children identifiable
We thank you for your enquiry and trust that our response is satisfactory.
