Education provision in the Dargavel area of Renfrewshire: FoI release

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

Information requested

Copies of all correspondence between Renfrewshire Council and the Scottish Government on the issue of education provision in the Dargavel area of Renfrewshire since 1st October 2022 (inclusive). This to include all correspondence:

  • Written correspondence (letters and emails)
  • Telephone logs
  • Meeting notes


I can confirm that the Scottish Government holds information falling within the scope of your request.  All information held that is in scope, with the exception of exempt material, is attached in the Annexes to
this letter.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance, we are unable to provide a small amount of the information you have requested because an exemption under 38(1)(b) (personal
information) of FOISA applies to that information. This is because it is personal data of a third party, i.e. names/contact details of individuals, 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.

We have no information to offer in relation to telephone logs.   Also, there have not been any meeting notes shared between us and Renfrewshire Council.

Due to the size of the files we are unable to upload the documents referred to above.
If you wish to consider, please contact us at the address below and we will be happy to provide.
