The complainant has requested all information Ofsted holds in relation to a particular school in Surrey between specified dates. The complainant asked for this to include (but not be limited by) all emails sent or received, all complaints and all child safety issues raised. Initially Ofsted refused to confirm or deny whether it holds the requested information under section 31(3) of the FOIA. However, at the internal review stage it changed its stance, disclosed some information and withheld other information under section 40 of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that Ofsted is entitled to withhold the remaining withheld information under section 40 of the FOIA. No steps are therefore required.
