Where the number of students
is fewer than 5, we have not
given the exact figure. This
is because this information
when combined with other
information available in the
public domain could make it
possible to identify an
individual resulting in
disclosure of personal data.
We concluded that the
disclosure of personal data
in this context would amount
to a breach of the first
data protection principle.
As such we have applied the
exemption available to us
under section 40 (2).

 

This states that personal
data must be processed
fairly and lawfully and
having considered the
expectations of these
individuals; our students
would have an expectation of
confidentiality.  Therefore,
we believe that the
disclosure would amount to
unfair processing of
personal data.

 

You are free to use any
information supplied for
your own use, including for
non-commercial research
purposes. The information
may also be used for the
purposes of news reporting.
However, any other type of
re-use, for example by
publishing or issuing copies
to the public, will require
the permission of the
copyright owner.

 

If you are unhappy with our
response to your request and
wish to make a complaint or

our final decision. (Please
note, complaints and
