Dear Mr Wright

Having now considered the request sent on 29th December we suspect that this submission is made under a pseudonym, and as such we will not be responding to the request.

Dear Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls School,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls School's handling of my FOI request 'Science teaching of the national curriculum'.

You state that you "suspect that this submission is made under a pseudonym" and
will therefore not be responding to my request.

The guidelines by the Information Commissioner state that "the
default position of a public authority should be to accept the name
provided by the applicant unless there is good reason to enquire
further about the applicant’s name".

The guidelines go further in stating "Even when an obvious
pseudonym has been used, as good practice a public authority should
still consider the request even though technically it can be
regarded as invalid."

Please can you review your decision not to provide the information
I requested. If you continue to refuse to deal with my request
please inform me of your reasons.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Dear Gareth Write

As previously stated, we suspect that you are using a pseudonym. We do not think that an internal review could add anything and we are not obliged by the Freedom of Information Act to offer you an internal review. If you are unhappy with this decision, then you may refer the matter to the ICO.
