Dear Ms Carver

Freedom of Information request RFI/10096

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request, shown below.

Our response is as follows:-

Please can you provide me with an up to date org chart for education. This
is to include SEN, School Improvement, School Place Planning, Director,
Heads of and Managers.

 

Please find attached document “Education structure chart.xlsx”

The senior staff with responsibility for these areas are:

·         Gillian Palmer: Director of Children’s Services

·         Louise Mackender de Cari: Assistant Director Commissioning and
Resources

·         Tracy Russell: Assistant Director Inclusion, Learning &
Development

We have withheld the information relating to the names of junior staff,
i.e. those who are not of Director or Assistant Director level. This
information has been withheld in accordance with section 40(2) of the Act.

Section 40(2) of the FOIA specifies that the personal information of a
third party must not be disclosed if to do so would contravene any of the
data protection principles. This first principle of the Data Protection
Act 1998 (‘the DPA’) states that personal data must be processed fairly
and lawfully.

Personal data is defined under section 1(1) of the DPA as data which
relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data, or
from that data and other information which is in the possession of the
data controller or is likely to come into the possession of the data
controller.

The withheld information comprises the names of junior members of staff,
i.e. those who are not senior members of staff, such as Directors and
Assistant Directors.

The information you have requested relate to living individuals who may be
identified from that data and therefore constitutes personal data.

 

The first principle of the DPA states that personal data must be processed
fairly and lawfully. In considering whether it would be unfair to provide
the requested information (names, email addresses and direct telephone
numbers) and whether this would contravene the requirements of the first
data protection principle, we have considered the following:-

 

Reasonable expectations

 

We have released the details for senior members of staff only. Junior
members of staff are not in public facing roles or employed at a senior
grade, neither do they play an active role in making decisions affecting
the Council. These staff members are not senior public figures and do not
hold an elected office. The Council does not routinely publish the names
of such individuals. It is on this basis that junior members of staff
would have a reasonable expectation that their identities would remain
private and not be disclosed to the public under the FOIA.

 

Consequences of disclosure

 

We consider that disclosure of the withheld information would be contrary
to expectations and therefore unfair, as such disclosure may cause some
distress to the individuals concerned.

If you have any queries about this correspondence, please contact me,
quoting the reference number above.

If you are not satisfied with our response to your request, you can ask
for an Internal Review.  Internal review requests should be submitted
within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original
request.  If you wish to do this, please contact us, setting out why you
are dissatisfied.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the Internal Review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner (ICO) for a decision. 
Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the
Internal Review procedure provided by the Council.

Yours sincerely,
