Hello Tom

 

Please find below a response to your freedom of information request.

 

    “ I would like a breakdown of the team within the education
     department.
    
     I would like the DCS confirmed, the Director and A/D of Education
     confirmed. I would also like each area of education and the
     relevant department heads (including SEN, Inclusion, School
     Improvement, Early Years, Post 16, Admissions, School Organisation,
     Capital Build etc.). I would like the officers and support staff
     for this area also confirmed. I would like to have names and job
     titles confirmed ideally.”

The attached chart shows the structure of the Education Department with
information provided to Head of Service level. Information regarding the
officers and support staff in each service area has not been provided as
Oldham Council have applied the following exemption from the Data
Protection Act,

 

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, Oldham Metropolitan Borough
Council has a duty to supply any information on request, unless there is
an exemption. It is the Council’s policy only to apply the exemptions
where there is a genuine risk of harm or prejudice. In such cases, we will
still provide information if it is in the public interest to do so.

In this instance, we believe that it is not in the public interest to
disclose some of the information requested.

Information about the exemption is included here.

Section 40 – we cannot disclose the information to you because it would be
a breach of the Data Protection Act.

Names and job title details are withheld from you under freedom of
Information exemption S.40 personal data. This exemption allows the
withholding of personal data if the data protection principles would be
breached by its disclosure. For your information personal data is data
that relates to and identifies a living individual and data protection
principle 1 requires that personal data is processed lawfully and fairly.
In order to be ‘lawful’ a condition must be met from schedule 2 of the
Data Protection Act 1998 and although your request evidences a legitimate
interest in requesting the data, this request cannot be fulfilled without
prejudice to the individuals rights and freedoms, in particular their
right to privacy and hence a condition in schedule 2 cannot be met.
Consequently, as Principle1 of the Data Protection Act 1998 cannot be met,
the exemption under Freedom of Information Act 2000 is engaged.

If you disagree with the exemption applied to this information, you may
appeal to
