Dear Ms Kerrigan,

Re: help desk request (ticket ref 2018060427000014)

Thank you for your recent request submitted under the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  The current independent specialist SEN
schools that the Comhairle place young people 16 years of age or under
within are Camphill School, Aberdeen and Daldorch House School, East
Ayrshire.  

Whilst the Act creates a general right of access to information held by a
Public Authority, this access is not unrestricted and is tempered by a
number of statutory exemptions.  The Comhairle considers that the
information which you have requested is exempt from disclosure under
Section 38 (1) (b) as the numbers are so small (less than five) that
individuals may be identifiable; therefore the information could be
considered personal data within the meaning of the Data Protection Act
1998.

If you are dissatisfied with this response you can request the Comhairle
to review this response to your request for information.  You have 40
working days from the date of receipt of this response in which to lodge
this request for review.  A request for review must be processed in
accordance with Part 1 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002,
must be in writing, describe your original request and explain why you are
dissatisfied.  An application for review should be sent to the Chief
Executive, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Council Offices, Sandwick Road,
Stornoway, Isle of Lewis HS1 2BW ([1][email address]).  A request
for review lodged with the Chief Executive must be processed promptly and
in any event within 20 working days of receipt.
 
Should you remain dissatisfied after completion of the review process you
may, within 6 months, apply to the Scottish Information Commissioner,
Kinburn Castle, Doubledykes Road, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9DS, to establish
whether your request for information has been processed in accordance with
Part 1 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  You may also
request an appeal through the Commissioner's online appeal service which
is available 24/7 and offers requesters real time help and advice about
their appeal - [2]www.itspublicknowledge.info/Appeal Should you remain
dissatisfied after the conclusion of an application to the Scottish
Information Commissioner you have the right to appeal to the Court of
Session on a point of law.
