Thank you for the acknowledgement.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Abid,

 

Further to your recent request for information relating to the above,
which has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

Please find the Council’s response below :

 

1)            Number of total Governors on Board at Heckmondwike Primary
School

               

I would advise you that the Council holds this information, but considers
this is exempt under Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act, as the
information is reasonably accessible to you by other means, because it is
already in the public domain.

 

[1]http://www.cawleylane.com/general-inform...

 

Section 21 of the Act provides that:

 

(1) Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant otherwise
than under section 1 is exempt information.

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)—

(a) information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though
it is accessible only on payment, and

(b) information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the
applicant if it is information which the public authority or any other
person is obliged by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than
by making the information available for inspection) to members of the
public on request, whether free of charge or on payment.

(3) For the purposes of subsection (1), information which is held by a
public authority and does not fall within subsection (2)(b) is not to be
regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the
information is available from the public authority itself on request,
unless the information is made available in accordance with the
authority’s publication scheme and any payment required is specified in,
or determined in accordance with, the scheme.

 

2)            Number of total Parent Governors who have children at
Heckmondwike Primary School

                Same response as question 1 above

 

3)            Number of total Governors who are members of staff at
Heckmondwike Primary School or are related to a member of staff
(              spouse, family etc.) at Heckmondwike Primary School

                This Council does not hold this information

 

4).           Total number of Governors who are Teachers or involved in
teaching professional in some capacity elsewhere but are serving         
as  Governors at Heckmondwike Primary School.

                This Council does not hold this information

 

If you are not content with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review.  Requests for internal reviews should
be submitted within 2 months of the date of receipt of the response to
your original request and should be addressed to the Monitoring Officer,
Civic Centre I, PO Box 1274, Huddersfield HD1 2WZ.  Alternatively, you can
send an email to: [2][email address] . 

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of any review you have the right
under section 50 of the 2000 Act to apply to the Information Commissioner
for a decision as to whether your request for information has been dealt
with in accordance with the requirements of the Act.  The Information
Commissioner’s website is at [3]www.ico.org.uk  and gives more information
about the role and duties of the Commissioner.  The Information
Commissioner can be contacted at: Information Commissioner’s Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Dear Freedom Info,

Thank you for your response.

Unfortunately your response to Point 2 is incorrect. This information is not available in public domain neither school nor council publishes exact number of 'actual parent governors' for this school. I would request that an internal review of this, and would welcome a response.

Regarding points 3 and 4, KMC can request this information from the school surely?

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Abid
