If the information you request contains reference to a third party then
they may be consulted prior to a decision being taken on whether or not to
release the information to you. We will tell you if this is the case.

Dear Sir/Madam,
 
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST X01- 5913
 
We refer to your email dated 1 February 2017 which contained a request for
information as set out in italics below.  Following consideration of your
request, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I respond
to each point as follows:
 
Please send me the NAME and CONTACT DETAILS for the Head of education and
any education improvement officers you may have within the council
structure.
 
The Corporate Director Education and Family Support is Deborah McMillan,
Tel: 01656 642616, E-mail: [1][email address]
 
Please find organisation chart below.
 
 
Whilst we can confirm that we hold the names of other officers in the
Education Department we consider this information is exempt under Section
40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 which states that:
(2) Any information to which a request for information relates is also
exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data which do not fall within subsection (1),
and
(b) either the first or second condition below is satisfied
(3) The first condition is-
(a) in a case where the information falls within any of the paragraphs (a)
to (d) of the definition of ‘data’ in section 1(1) of the Data Protection
Act 1998, that the disclosure of the information to a member of the public
otherwise than under this Act would contravene-
(i) any of the data protection principles
 
Section 1(1) of the Data Protection Act 1998 states that-
Personal data means data which relate to a living individual who can be
identified –
 
(a)  from those data, or
(b)  from those data and other information which is in the possession of,
or is likely to come into the possession of, the data controller,
 
and includes any expression of opinion about the individual and any
indication of the intentions of the data controller or any other person in
respect of the individual.
 
Under Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act, the information
requested is subject to an absolute exemption.  This exemption applies
because the information requested would constitute a disclosure of
personal data.
 
The Information Commissioner’s guidance “Access to Information about
public authorities’ employees” and “When should names be disclosed?”
provide guidance on how the Authority should treat requests for
information of this nature.  The Authority considers the information
requested to be absolutely exempt from disclosure by virtue of Section
40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 
 
The Authority does not consider that it would be fair in all the
circumstances to identify the individual as whilst the information relates
to them in their professional capacity, they would not reasonably expect
their details to be placed into the public domain.  The Authority’s
procedure is not to disclose as a matter of routine information about
members of staff below Assistant Chief Executive level. 
 
Therefore, to the extent set out above, this letter acts as a Refusal
Notice in accordance with Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act
2000 as we have not supplied all of the information requested.
 
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of the request, under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 you have the right to request a review of
the Council’s response to your request for information.  If you wish to
request a review, please write to:
 
Mr P A Jolley
Corporate Director, Operational and
Partnership Services and Monitoring Officer
Bridgend County Borough Council
Civic Offices,
Angel Street
Bridgend, CF31 4WB
 
within 28 days of the date of this letter.  If you remain dissatisfied
with the outcome of that review, you may seek further recourse by lodging
an appeal with the Information Commissioner at:
 
Information Commissioner’s Office – Wales
