BISHOP, Stephen, Department for Education

Dear Ms Fox

 

Thank you for your FOI request. You requested:

 

Dear Department for Education,

 

Concern is widespread re Rainbow Cultural Garden School associated with
pedophile and sex slave and branding boss Keith Raniere now convicted and 
in jail and Sex Cult NXIVM .

Which Department of Government is responsible for inspection of this
school?

 

Does the Dept for Education has a duty of care to these school children?

 

What recorded information does the Education Department have on this
school and Keith Raniere?

 

I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(“the Act”). The information which can be released is as follows:

 

 1. This is not a registered educational setting; it is believed to be a
provider of home tuition services and in consequence is not regulated
or inspected by any government agency;
 2. No, since it is not an educational setting. The safeguarding of
children receiving tuition from those employed by this organisation,
if it is providing tuition in homes, is the responsibility of the
parents/carers of those children, as is the case whenever home tuition
is provided. If any specific safeguarding concern arises for a
specific child it should be reported to the Local Authority Designated
Officer in the local authority where the child lives.

 

The department may hold the remainder of the information you requested.
However, the Department estimates that the cost of complying with your
request would exceed the cost threshold applicable to central government.
This is £600 and represents the estimated cost of one person spending 3½
working days locating, retrieving and extracting the information.

 

Under section 12 of the Act the department is therefore not obliged to
comply with your request and will not be processing it further

 

This is because examining the results of an electronic search of the
department’s records to decide what information is in scope, and whether
any of it is then subject to possible exemptions under the Act, would cost
significantly more than the threshold.

 

However, if you were to make a new request for a narrower category of
information or limit the scope of your request in terms of dates or in
some other way, the department may be able to comply with your request
within the cost limit, although I cannot guarantee that this will be the
case. 

If you have any queries about this email, 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 email. 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.
