Dear Sunderland City Council,
Please can you send me an up to date Organisational Structure Chart for the Special Educational Needs Department, including names.
Re: Your request for information concerning:
SEN Org Chart.
The Council aims to provide available information promptly and in any
event within 20 working days, unless, exceptionally, there is a need to
consider whether the information is exempt from disclosure.
I will contact you again soon in connection with your request.
Please quote the reference below if you contact the Council regarding this
Customer Request Number: 17 12 23
Thank you for your request for information. Please find the information
you requested attached.
Please note that in responding we have followed the guidance issued by the
Information Commissioner's Office in releasing personal data around public
authority employees, with specific regard to the sections which outline
that senior employees should expect their posts to carry a greater level
of accountability and scrutiny, since they are likely to be responsible
for major policy decisions and the expenditure of public funds. The
council firmly believes that this level of scrutiny does not apply to all
staff within the SEN service and we have therefore limited the names
released to Service Manager level.
The Council hopes that the information provided proves useful. If however,
you are dissatisfied with our response to your request for information,
you can ask for the decision to be reviewed within 40 calendar days. A
request for review should be directed by email to
[Sunderland City Council request email], or by post to: Information
Governance Officer, Governance Services, Civic Centre, PO Box 100,
Sunderland SR2 7DN.
You are of course entitled to apply to the Information Commissioner at any
time, although the Commissioner will not usually investigate until the
public authority’s internal review procedure has been concluded.
