Dear Sacred Heart Catholic College, Crosby, Liverpool,

There has been recent attention given to the use of Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) (also known as a Confidentiality Agreement (CA), Secrecy Agreement (SA) and gagging order amongst other terms).

1) Please confirm how many NDAs (or similar agreements) have been created for current or departing staff at Sacred Heart Catholic College since January 2015.

2) Please confirm the total financial amount used to enforce and/or cover (including payments to employees or former employees) NDAs (or similar agreements) created by Sacred Heart Catholic College since January 2015.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sacred Heart Catholic College, Crosby, Liverpool,

I would be grateful if my request for information could be answered or reviewed via an Internal Review. If a satisfactory response is not provided reasonably soon, I will forward the matter to the Information Commissioner and MP for Sefton Central.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs E A Pearce

Dear Mrs Pearce

 

Please see below the answer to your most recent FOI request.

 

There are 8 cases totalling £75,000.

 

Public authorities should provide applicants with particulars of how they
may complain about the handling of the subject access request should they
wish to do so. In the first instant any such complaint should be directed
to the Chair of Governors at Sacred Heart Catholic College. If you remain
dissatisfied then you may contact the Information Commissioners Office at
Wycliffe House, Water Lane Wilmslow Cheshire SK9 5AF

 

 

 

Dear langtons,
Thank you for your response.

It is a concern that many Non Disclosure Agreements have been necessary in school over a relatively short period of time. These agreements may have discouraged or prevented departing staff from revealing the full circumstances for their exit.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs E A Pearce
