Dear Kent County Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Kent County Council's handling of my FOI request 'Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education'.

The Locally Agreed Syllabus is a statutory document that belongs in the public domain. I have been told that it is copyrighted by REToday and is only available in schools in the area. Intellectual copyright does not allow for them to withold a statutory document which, in effect, has crown copyright.
I look forward to your early response.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...

Yours faithfully,

Christine Crosby

Good afternoon,
 
In response to your email, please see below:
 
The Locally Agreed Syllabus is a statutory document that belongs in the
public domain. I have been told that it is copyrighted by REToday and is
only available in schools in the area. Intellectual copyright does not
allow for them to withhold a statutory document which, in effect, has
crown copyright.
This does not fall in to the remit of Freedom of Information or KCC.  If
you believe a document should be publicly available, you must contact to
the document owner to make your complaint.  
 
This document is held by a body outside of KCC. As stated in your
response, please see the link below
