Length of decision making process, number of teachers barred.

Mr Underwood made this Freedom of Information request to Independent Safeguarding Authority

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

The request was partially successful.

Dear Independent Safeguarding Authority,

Thank you very much for your prompt and detailed response to my last request for information. Can I ask you a small number of further questions based on this information.

1) How many of those 149 people barred, under your discretionary powers, were barred from working with children? from working with vulnerable adults? from both?

2) Of those 149 people who have been barred under the ISA's discretionary powers, how many did not submit representations within the deadline for submission (I understand this to usually be 8 weeks)? - Please also divide this into those placed on the two different barred lists.

3) How long has it taken, on average, from receipt of details of a case to a final barring decision being made, in those cases when a person has been barred? (In those instances of discretionary barring only).

4) Is this answer different depending upon which barred list they were placed upon? (children or vulnerable adults)

5) How long has it taken on average from the decision to be 'minded to bar' being reached to the decision either to bar or not? (In those instances of discretionary barring only).

6)Is this answer different depending upon which barred list they were placed upon? (children or vulnerable adults)

7) How many of those 67 people who were 'minded to bar' but not barred under your discretionary powers, were considered for barring from working with children? From working with vulnerable adults? From both?

8) How many of those 67 people who were 'minded to bar' but not barred under your discretionary powers, were:
teachers at primary level?
teachers at secondary level?
non-teaching staff working in a school?
referred by a voluntary group?

9) How many of the 166 'active' discretionary minded to bar cases relate to the childrens' list? vulnerable adults' list? both?

10) How many of the 166 people who are currently 'minded to bar' under your discretionary powers, are/were:
teachers at primary level?
teachers at secondary level?
non-teaching staff working in a school?
referred by a voluntary group?

Yours faithfully,

Mr Underwood
Vice-President Cambridge NASUWT
