I am only interested in data for the following schools within Kettering, however if you are only able to provide the data for all schools within northamptonshire, If this information is available for all schools in Northamptonshire then I'm happy to receive the information for all the schools without you needing to filter our these ones:

Equally, if any of this information is freely available on the northamptonshire website, please feel free to direct me to the relevant pages and I can extract the information myself.

Please can you provide information for the September 2015 Primary Admissions for each school as detailed below.

1) How many places were available at each school (PAN)?

Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

Thank you for your response. I requested to remove your response, and I am therefore requesting a replacement summary response excel file from yourselves due to the following reason:

* Council responded to request at 14:03
* At 20:45, I logged into review the response received - and observed personal data in the response relating to children.
* At 20:48, I asked in the mysociety chat room how to contact the team.
* At 20:54, I sent an email to [email address]
* At 21:05, responded stating that they have hidden the response. (nice response time)

The information you provided correctly summarised and answered the questions in the FOI for which I am grateful, however, the file that was given publically in the response had not had the raw data removed.

The response file contains the name, dob and address details of the entire admissions cohort - 1434 children, due to not removing the raw data from which the summary was generated.

Can you please supply a replacement response to this FOI that can be made publically available, without personal data?

Apart from that, I'm not really sure where to go from here and will be seeking advice from on how they normally handle accidental disclosures such as this.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Richards
