Education Scotland’s Advisory Board risk register relating to heat maps: FOI release

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

Information requested

Can you please send me the risk register/risk papers and heat maps mentioned in the minutes of the December 2022 advisory board below.


Please see the attached papers that you requested from Education Scotland’s Advisory Board held on 7 December 2022.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information within Annex B and C because exemptions under section 30(c) – otherwise prejudice effective conduct of public affairs and section 38(1)(b) – personal information of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why these exemptions apply are explained in Annex A to this letter.

A copy of our recently published Annual Report and Accounts for 2022-23 will provide you with further information on our risk management at the following link: annual-report-and-accounts-2022-2023-final-report.pdf

Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the link above, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy.
