Response

I can confirm that the London Borough of Enfield does hold this
information. However, some parts of this request have returned a response
of five or less results and this could, potentially, make it easy to
identify any of the parties involved. As this is the case the information
will be withheld to protect confidentiality. We have therefore withheld
the specific numbers in these cases, in line with Section 40 (2) of the
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), to protect our pupils confidential
personal data. Section 40(2) provides that personal data about third
parties is exempt information if one of the conditions set out in section
40(3) is satisfied. Under the FOIA disclosure of this information would
breach the fair processing principle contained in the Data Protection Act
(DPA), where it would be unfair to that person/is confidential. After
clarification of some questions our response is below.
