Kirkpatrick Angelene, North Lanarkshire Council

Dear Sir/Madam

Request for information

I refer again to your email of 25 January 2018 seeking information in relation to employees who work four days per week.

Having investigated, my response to your seven enquiries is as follows:-

(1) I regret to advise you that there is no dataset from which the information requested can be easily extracted.

That being said, the Council undoubtedly hold records on employee’s work patterns however to compile the information you seek would require individual scrutiny of 4,000 different work patterns records. That, however, would be highly labour intensive and exceed the amount prescribed for the purposes of Section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

(2) 66 primary teachers and 52 secondary teachers work four days per week.

(3) Six

(4)&(5) I regret to advise you that there is no dataset from which the information requested can be easily extracted.

Similar to point (1) above, to compile the information sought would require manual scrutiny of a large number of individual records and the cost of so doing would exceed the amount specified for Section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

(6) Two secondary school depute head teachers work four days per week.

(7) None

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the provisions of Section 21 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested information and is in any way dissatisfied with the decision on that request, can within forty working days require a review of that decision by writing to the Head of Business for Legal and Democratic Solutions, Civic Centre, Windmillhill Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB. Accordingly, if you are dissatisfied with this decision and seek such review please write to the Head of Business for Legal and Democratic Solutions.

I would advise, also, that in terms of Section 47 of the Act a person who is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under Section 21 of the Act - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by a local authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a notice - may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner for a decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that application, the request for information to which the requirement relates has been dealt with in accordance with the Act. Such an application must be made within six months of the review decision and be in writing or in another form which, by reason of it having some permanency is capable of being used for subsequent reference. The application must state the name of the applicant, and provide an address for correspondence. The application must also specify the request for information to which the requirement for review relates, the matter which gave rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the original decision of the local authority and the matter which gives rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the decision on review by the local authority or the failure of the local authority to issue such a decision. The Scottish Information Commissioner can be contacted as follows:-

Scottish Information Commissioner
Kinburn Castle
Doubledykes Road
St. Andrews
KY16 9DS
email: [email address]

Appeals to the Scottish Information Commissioner can also be made online via the following link: -

Yours faithfully
