Dear Jayne,

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act. Unfortunately we cannot currently process this as a Freedom of Information request as you are not providing us with enough information. Specifically with regard to your name. The Information Commissioner's Office guidance states the following;

"21. For a request to be valid, the requester must provide enough of their real name to give anyone reading that request a reasonable indication of their identity."

" 25. Any variation of the requester’s title or first name combined with their surname (e.g. Mr Smith or John Smith) will be sufficient to meet this requirement. However, a first name or surname provided in isolation, or a set of initials, will not."

Given that you are only really providing us with a first name I'm afraid we cannot currently treat this as a valid request. If you would like to supply your surname we would be more than happy to process your request and supply any information to which you are entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In this instance the 20 working day timeframe will start from the receipt of your full name.

A copy of the ICO guidance can be found here; http://ico.org.uk/~/media/documents/libr...

If you do come back clarifying your name I would request that you be clearer what information you are requesting as the request is unclear.

Regards

Dear Jayne,

 

I am processing your data request but I require more information from you
before I can do this.

 

Can you please answer the following:

1.      Do you require information based on the student’s home address
details (Please note, we cannot guarantee this means that students are
from Leicestershire)?

2.      Can you please clarify which academic years you are interested in?

a.      2015/6, and 2017/8 (as suggested by your email)?

b.      OR 2015/6, 2016/7, and 2017/8 (the 2018/9 academic year has not
yet started so we cannot report on this)?

3.      Can you please clarify what your definition of Leicestershire is?

a.      Within the boundaries of Leicestershire i.e. Leicester city and
Leicestershire (all LE postcodes)?

b.      Leicestershire but NOT Leicester city (as they are different
council areas)?

c.      OR another definition – if so, please clarify.

 

This request will be complex and may require some caveats, which you will
be notified of when you receive the information.

Please contact me if you require any assistance with providing the above
information. I cannot complete your request until I have this.

 

Kind regards,
