I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
A csv file containing data from the Get Information about Schools (GIAS)
website as at 16 April 2018 is enclosed. The file contains a standard
extract of all educational establishments in England.
Currently we list FE and Sixth Form Corporations, Specialist Designated
Colleges and Special Post 16 Institutions.
We are withholding the email address of the head teacher under section
40(2) (personal data), this is because the information in question
includes 3rd party personal data. Personal data is that which relates to
a living individual who can be identified from that data, or from that
data and other information which is likely to be in, or to come into, the
possession of the requestor. Disclosure of this information would
contravene a number of the data protection principles in the Data
Protection Act 1998, and would be regarded as ‘unfair’. By that, we mean
the likely expectations of the data subject that his or her information
would not be disclosed to others and the effect which disclosure would
have on the data subject. Section 40(2) is an absolute exemption and is
not subject to the public interest test.
I have supplied you with the school email address where available.
Further information on the terms used within this extract can be found in
the GIAS glossary: www.get-information-schools.service.gov.uk/glossary
School level pupil numbers, for schools in England, are available in the
underlying data section of the publication “Schools, pupils and their
characteristics”, the current edition can be found on the GOV.UK website
