Record of Inspection Findings for Dalbeattie High School: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested


Your requested further information in respect of Dalbeattie High School as follows:
Is the SIF available for this inspection? ... you are interested in knowing the details behind the evaluative statements (meeting needs - very good) ... in particular.




Please find attached a copy of the Record of Inspection Findings (RIF) equivalent to the Summarised Inspection of Findings (SIF) .

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information requested because exemption under section 38(1)(b), personal information of FOISA applies to some of the information requested.

The reason why this exemption applies is explained in the Annex to this letter.



Section 38(1)(b) - personal information

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to some of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018.

This exemption is not subject to the ‘public interest test’, so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.
