Freedom of Information Request

Access to pornography on school networks

Received: 21 January 2023

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information which I am entitled to under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I would like the following data on the number of incidents of pornography being accessed on school computers or networks within your borough. Please provide me with:

a) a list of and a total number of times of the incidents of pornography being accessed on school computers or networks in schools within the borough from January 2022 until December 2022, and, if possible, what disciplinary or educational actions were taken by the schools in response to these incidents. I would like this broken down by month, if possible.

Please could you provide it in the form of a spreadsheet (csv or xlsx) - that would be really helpful.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits (Section 12), it would be great if you could provide advice and assistance, (Section 16 obligations of the Act), as to how I can refine my request - please bear in mind the regional clarification above if local authority isn't possible. If you hold information on some parts of the request but not others, please could you provide that information, rather than a blanket refusal.

Generally, if you can identify any ways that my request could be refined I would be grateful!
If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact me via email and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.
