I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

A number of Excel spreadsheet containing the requested information for the
requested collections are enclosed. The spreadsheets contain the local
authority number, establishment number, establishment name, establishment
unique reference number, establishment type, establishment phase, MIS
supplier software code and number of pupils for each school. It is not
possible to provide the software supplier name as this information is not
collected. However, the software supplier code we have included contains
the software supplier name in the majority of cases.

 

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you should
make a complaint to the Department by writing to me within two calendar
months of the date of this letter.  Your complaint will be considered by
an independent review panel, who were not involved in the original
consideration of your request. 

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint to the
Department, you may then contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.

 

Kind Regards
