Investigation into SATs tests maladministration at Wentworth COFE School

Andrew Moore made this Freedom of Information request to Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council,
In July 2016 it was established that there had been maladministration of SATs tests at Wentworth COFE School. This led to all results for Year 6 pupils being annulled. Parents were informed that a further 'independent review' would take place, presumably to clarify who was involved in the maladministration and why these events were allowed to happen.
My understanding is that Rotherham Council would be taking part in the review. I am therefore
requesting the following information:
1. Clarification of the individuals / parties who carried out the review.
2. The outcome of the review and any action taken as a result.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Moore

Dear FreedomofInformation,
I just want to follow up on the first part of my request - was the council involved in the review? If so, who were the other parties involved - there would surely be some records kept of this. Otherwise I will have to assume the council was not involved as had been previously reported by the BBC and Rotherham Advertiser.

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Moore

Dear Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Investigation into SATs tests maladministration at Wentworth COFE School'.

My original FOI request was not answered to my satisfaction and my follow up question which was acknowledged as another FOI request has not been answered.
As it stands, I still wish to have full clarification of all parties who were involved in the investigation into to SATs maladministration at Wentworth COFE school. As Rotherham Council were stated as being one of the parties, there surely must be some record of proceedings available unless there was change in the way in which the matter was investigated.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/i...

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Moore
