Dear Nicola Tanner,

Under the FOIA I do not have to explain why I have requested the information, and I think i have made it quite clear what information I am asking for.

However, by way of clarification, by "detailed findings", I am requesting the exact records of the inspectors visits which led them to publishing the grade 3 result in all areas.

For example - "Name" Children's Centre - door unlocked to room containing sharps box with potential access to young children" - so specific issues like safeguarding that I believe is in the public interest to be disclosed.

Yours sincerely,

James Brookes
