Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000

Reference No: 369209
Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
Please can you provide me with an up to date org chart for education.

Director, Heads of and Managers
We apply Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, 'Information
reasonably accessible to the applicant by other means', to your request.
Section 21 states:
(1) Information which is readily available to the applicant otherwise than
under section 1 is exempt information.
(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)-
(a) information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though
it is accessible only on payment, and
(b) information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the
applicant if it is information which the public authority or any other
person is obliged by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than
by making the information available for inspection) to members of the
public on request, whether free of charge or upon payment.
(3) For the purposes of subsection (1), information which is held by a
public authority and does not fall within subsection (2)(b) is not to be
regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the
information is available from the public authority itself on request,
unless the information is made available in accordance with the
authority's publication scheme and any payment required is specified in,
or determined in accordance with, the scheme.
This acts as an exemption notice. Subsection 1 means that the Council is
relieved of the duty to communicate the requested information to an
applicant if there is an existing method by which the information can be
obtained, outside of the operation of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
This is an absolute exemption and therefore does not require the public
interests balancing test to be applied. We confirm that the requested
information can be accessed through the council's public website at the
following link:
We hope you find this information useful.
You are free to use the information provided for your own purposes,
including any non-commercial research you are doing and for the purposes
of news reporting. Any other re-use, for example commercial publication,
requires the permission of the copyright holder. You may apply for
permission to re-use this information by submitting a request to
