Case Note 2438 [1994] – Complainant wanted access to two letters which had made allegations about her being involved with selling drugs at school

The complainant wanted access to two letters which had made allegations about her being involved with selling drugs at school. One letter was signed, one anonymous, but both were handwritten. The school initially refused to give copies of the letters to the complainant because it was concerned that this might discourage students from reporting drug dealing. The school considered this to be an important priority given the grave nature of the problem. The complainant asked me to investigate the school’s decision.
