Dear Dr E Badger,


Thank you for your request submitted under the Freedom of Information Act
2000. Our response to your request is below & attached as follows.


Please note that schools do not teach to the selective tests, which are
optional, and performance of pupils on the selective test must not be used
in anyway as a proxy for school performance.


Also low figures are exempt under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 as disclosure would allow the possibility of the
identification of a living individual(s), thereby breaching the Data
Protection Act 2018.  In accordance with Section 16 of the Act, and to
provide you with relevant advice and assistance, where applicable low
numbers have been represented as “ ~ “ (less than five).


We believe this information relates to an individual’s private life and
consider that there would be no expectation that any information in
relation to the matters concerning any individuals would be disclosed to a
third party outside of the process. There is an implied level of
confidentiality in regard to these processes and therefore, we believe, no
expectation of disclosure. 


The Council therefore maintains that due to these very low numbers,
providing this information to the requester could potentially identify a
living individual. The Council further believes, disclosure of the
information and potentially identifying individuals would not provide any
greater understanding of the subject matter.


The Council therefore maintains that disclosure would not be regarded
lawful and fair processing in relations to individual(s) concerned and
accordance with the Data protection act 2018 and General Data Protection


I trust the above assists with your enquiries.


You have the right under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
to ask for an internal review if you are dissatisfied with the information
provided to you. Please direct any request for an internal review to
