Dear Simon Thomson,

Thank you for you response, unfortunately the information in the email is in a protected format so I can't access it. If it's not too much trouble, could you please resend the information again?

Yours sincerely,

Steph Ademolu

Simon Thomson,

Dear Ms Ademolu,

 

Following your email, which we received on Monday 28th November 2022,
please find below the information we released to you on Friday 28th
October 2022.  

 

“Dear Ms Ademolu,

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Information Request

Thank you for your request for information, which Eden Girls’ Leadership
Academy, Birmingham , received on Monday 17th October 2022 requesting
information regarding sanctions and other punishments issued by the school
in relation to uniform. 

The school only holds summary information in relation to the number of
incidents regarding breaches of the uniform policy.

 

The information we hold for the current academic year is as follows:

 

All pupils

 

  Y7 Y8 Y9 Y10 Y11 All
Incorrect uniform       2   2
Incorrect/no PE kit 7 7 22 11 2 49
Wearing Makeup or Jewellery 1         1

 

Non-SEND/SEND

 

  Non-SEND SEND
Incorrect uniform 2  
Incorrect/no PE kit 36 13
Wearing Makeup or Jewellery   1

 

Non-PP/PP (Pupil premium)

 

  Non-PP PP
Incorrect/no PE kit 28 21
Incorrect uniform   2
Wearing Makeup or Jewellery 1  

 

The information we hold for the academic year 2021/22 is as follows:

 

Incorrect uniform – 38

 

Incorrect/no PE kit – 203

 

Wearing make-up or jewellery – 5

 

Please note that due to a change in reporting we do not hold information
for the previous academic year in the same format and with the same
breakdowns as in the current academic year.  We do not hold any
information that you are seeking prior to the academic year 2021/22 due to
a change in reporting descriptors.  

 

In terms of punishments for infringements of the unform policy Eden Girls’
Leadership Academy, Birmingham, usually issues verbal warnings.  If a
pupil has had two previous verbal warnings, a third infringement of the
uniform policy will, usually, be sanctioned through a 30-miniute
detention.  Given the age range of the pupils who attend Eden Girls
Leadership Academy, Birmingham, the school will always seek to try and
understand why pupils are not wearing the correct PE kit or have not
brought any PE kit.  If it becomes clear that the pupil is attempting to
avoid PE that the school may issue a sanction, as we are of the view that
PE is good for the mental well-being and physical health of our pupils. 
However, before issuing any sanction Eden Girls’ Leadership Academy,
Birmingham, would always look to understand why a pupil does not want to
participate and encourage them to take part.                  

 

If you are unhappy with the service that you have received in relation to
your request and wish to request a review of the decision, you should
write to:  Freedom of Information, Star Academies, Shadsworth Road,
Blackburn, BB1 2HT or email [1][email address].

If you are not content with the outcome of your review, 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 Star
Academies’ procedure.  The information Commissioner can be contacted at: 
Telephone 0303 123 1113 or via [2]www.ico.gov.uk.

Yours sincerely,”
