 9 February 2012Mr Tom NightingaleSent by email to:request-100444-0a81bc9d@whatdotheyknow.com Our Reference: CAS-211291-FSJKJM Dear Mr Nightingale
Your request for information
Thank you for your email of 15 January 2012, which was received by us viawhatdotheyknow.com on the same day. You have requested information in relation to two Ofsted inspections of BurwoodSchool in connection with injuries sustained by a member of staff at the school.
Summary of response
We do not hold specific information in relation to your request but have providedsome general information which you may find helpful.
The Freedom of Information Act
We have dealt with your request in accordance with the Freedom of Information(FOI) Act 2000.The first requirement of the Act is that we should confirm whether or not we holdinformation of the description set out in your request. I can confirm that we do nothold the evidence from the inspections of Burwood School in either 2011 or 2009.Neither do we hold any information about the injuries sustained by a member of staff at the school.Ofsted has a policy whereby it retains the evidence base from inspections for sixmonths following the date of an inspection taking place. In this case, I regret thatthe evidence bases for both inspections have been destroyed in line with ourretention policy and are therefore no longer available for us to examine. As aconsequence, we are unable to consider the evidence to ascertain the full picture

 surrounding these particular inspections and therefore are unable to answer yourspecific questions.However, in respect of concerns expressed by parents and carers in the 2011inspection, the report indicates that only eight completed questionnaires werereturned although there were 44 pupils in the school at the time. The negative viewsexpressed were those of a very small number of parents and carers. The views of pupils, parents and carers and staff were clearly taken into account and reportedupon in the inspection report.I regret it is not within Ofsted’s powers to investigate concerns about the treatmentor actions of individual members of staff. This is because Ofsted has no jurisdictionover, and cannot directly influence, decisions about employment matters.I trust that this letter clearly explains our position and provides you with someinformation in relation to your request. If you have any queries about our response,please contact me at 0300 013 1108 and I will do my best to address them.If you are dissatisfied with the handling of the FOI aspects of your request, you mayrequest a formal internal review. In order to do this, please write to the followingaddress, setting out which areas of the response you are unhappy with:Email:Richxxx.xxxxxxx@xxxxxx.xxx.uk or write to:Head of Information RightsLegal Services DivisionOfsted Aviation House125 KingswayLondonWC2B 6SEIf you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you also have theright to apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision as to whether or notwe have complied with our obligations under the FOI Act with respect to yourrequest.
