Dear Mr Walker,

Thank you for your FOI request received on 17 July.

As previously stated, Ofsted do not hold the information that you have
requested for Zenna Atkins. As you may know, requests for information
made under the Freedom of Information Act require public authorities to
state whether it holds the information requested however we are not
required to obtain the information in order to respond to the request. I
am therefore unable to confirm whether Zenna has attended a Common Purpose
training course or whether she is a Common Purpose 'Graduate'.

If you are unhappy with the handling of your request, you may seek an
internal review by writing to:

Deputy Director of Corporate Services,

Ofsted

Alexandra House

33 Kingsway

London WC2B 6SE
