How much does the school pay yearly to University of Cambridge colleges for use of land, use of buildings, or other services? Please separate by individual college and each individual service, and provide five years of data, broken down by year.
If you require any clarification or there are any issues with the processing of this request, please let me know as soon as possible. Otherwise, I expect a response within the statutory deadline of 20 working days from the receipt of this request.

Joanne Patterson,

Dear Grace,
Thank you for your FOI sent to Oakington Primary School which has been
forwarded to myself as DPO for the Trust.
Just to clarify, under FOI and ICO regquirements, schools have 20 school
days to respond, that does not include staff training days extract below
from the following link -
[1]https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...
(i) Requests to schools
71. This variation applies to all schools covered by the Act, including
maintained schools, academies, pupil referral units and state funded
nurseries.
72. The Regulations state that the time for compliance will be whichever
is the shorter period;
   20 working days following the date of receipt, excluding any day which
is not a school day (this effectively equates to a period of 20 school
days); or
 
   60 working days following the date of receipt.  
73. A ‘school’ day will be any day on which there is a session and the
pupils are in attendance.
74. ‘Working days’ exclude school holidays and ‘inset’ or training days
where the pupils are not present.
75. The following example illustrates how this variation works in
practice.
  
Time limits for compliance under the Freedom of Information Act (Section
10) 20150720
 
Version: 1.1
17
Example A school receives a request on 20 July. The school is scheduled to
close for the summer holidays on 24 July and will reopen on 10 September.
 
 
When calculating the time for compliance, the school recognises that it
will not have to count any of the days between 24 July and 10 September,
as these are non-school days for the purposes of the Regulations.
 
After taking this into account it determines that a period of 20 school
days will elapse in early October.
 
It then calculates the date on which 60 working days would elapse and
discovers that this will fall in November.   This means that, provided the
school cannot respond more promptly, the time for compliance in this case
will be 20 school days because this period will lapse before an interval
of 60 working days has passed.
 
 
Therefore, as the school closed yesterday, the countdown will start on the
7th January when the school reopens, you will receive a response in
relation to this by 6th March 2020.

Kind regards

Joanne
