Dear Everton Free School,

Please could you send me details of the total salary paid to the seven managers listed on your web site and the individual breakdown. Seven managers for a school of 130 seems to be very high. I note that 55 pupils are in Alternative Provision and 80 in the 'open' sixth form. How does the school justify employing so many managers?

Yours faithfully,

Richard Knights

Dear Mr Knights

We note your information requests dated 10 November 2015 and 24 October
2015 respectively. We do not deem exact salary details to be appropriate
to release nor are we obliged to release such information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. As such, please find the adequate
responses to your queries below:

The managers listed on the website earn a combined salary of £307,000.

 

The managers fall within the following pay bands on the leadership pay
range:

 

Leadership spine point 26 – 30

Leadership spine point 7 -11

Leadership spine point 1 – 2

NJC pay spine point 25 – 30

You will be aware of the right of public authorities to refuse to answer
requests that are not for the purpose of supplying information but for the
annoyance and disturbance of a public body, particularly when such
requests are leading to the resources of the authority being squandered by
inappropriate use of the Act. Your continuous filing of information
requests (not limited to 20 separate requests since March 2015), many of
which cover the same ground has an obvious impact on the school’s
resources and we have genuine reason to believe that there is no
reasonable foundation for your filing of such requests. Therefore please
be advised that we reserve this right and will in future refuse any
request which is vexatious in nature.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review.  Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to The Principal, Everton Free
School & Sixth Form College, 42 Spellow Lane, Liverpool L4 4DF and
info@evertonfs,net.  If you are not content with the outcome of your
complaint, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office
(ICO) for a decision.  Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless
you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by the School.  The
ICO can be contacted at Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

Regards

Richard
