Collection

Ofsted Freedom of Information request datasets

Datasets disclosed as a result of Freedom of Information (FOI) requests.

Publication of FOI datasets

Ofsted must publish datasets which are disclosed as a result of Freedom of Information requests.

This is due to a change to legislation which came into effect on 1 September 2013 and brought in this requirement for public authorities like Ofsted.

The majority of dataset requests received by Ofsted are for information which Ofsted already routinely makes available, or subsets of that information which can be obtained by using filters provided with the data:

This collection gathers together datasets that were provided in response to FOI requests.

This collection was launched with datasets for 2013 and 2014 and will be regularly updated.

The requirement to publish datasets includes publishing updated versions of those datasets if applicable: Ofsted will add the additional requested information into its routine publications and update those at appropriate intervals.

Information exempt from disclosure

Some information which is requested is exempt from disclosure to the public under the Freedom of Information Act. It is therefore not appropriate for this information to be made available.

Examples of information which it is not appropriate to make available includes the locations of women’s refuges, some military bases and all children’s homes; and the personal data of providers and staff.

Ofsted also considers that the names and addresses of registered childminders are their personal data which it is not appropriate to make publicly available unless those individuals have given their explicit consent to do so.
