Dear Sir/Madam

 

RE:     Freedom Of Information Act 2000 – INFORMATION Request

 

Further to the acknowledgment email of the 21 March 2017, we cannot
sufficiently identify the information you have requested from the details
you have provided.  To help us respond to your request could you please
clarify the following point:

 

2 How many Stage 1 grievances found in favour of the employee?

 

3 How many Stage 2 grievances found in favour of the employee?

 

4 How many Stage 3 grievances found in favour of the employee?

 

Can you clarify what Stage 1,2 and 3 are as we don’t refer to this in our
policy.  The School’s policy states the Hearing as Stage 1 and the appeal
as stage 2 but we don’t have a stage 3. 

 

Once we receive this we will consider your request and you will receive
the information requested within the statutory timescale of 20 working
days, unless the information is exempt or we require additional time to
consider whether disclosure is in the public interest in accordance with
Section 2 of the Freedom of Information Act.
