Freedom of Information request regarding satellite school

The request was partially successful.

Dear Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Faversham,

I would like to make a Freedom of Information request regarding your application for SSEF funding to build a satellite grammar school in Whitstable or Herne Bay. Please send me the following information:

1) The submission sent to the DfE when your school applied for the Selective School Expansion Fund. If there is financial information which might be commercially sensitive please obscure this and send the remaining documentation.

2) All documents relating to the formulation of that submission including minutes of meetings, emails, letters, memos, power point (or similar) presentations or attachments or annexes to such documents including, in particular, all documents which consider, evaluate or explain the intended operational and governance arrangements for the satellite including the arrangements for pupils, staff, policies, premises and finance.

3) Full details of discussions with the Weald of Kent grammar school, Kent County Council, or the DfE, regarding requirements as detailed in ‘Making significant changes to an open academy’ for a trust expanding onto an additional site to prove whether the new provision is genuinely a change to an existing school or is, in effect, a new school. Please, in particular, provide copies of all documents including emails, letters, notes, attendance notes, power point (or similar) presentations or attachments or annexes to such documents which comprise, relate to, or evidence such discussions.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,

Joanne Bartley

Mrs S O'Flaherty, Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Faversham
