Freedom of information: publication scheme
All public authorities, including schools, are required under the Freedom of Information Act to adopt a publication scheme that has been approved by the Information Commissioner.
There is currently one approved model publication scheme, which has been produced by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Schools must adopt the ICO’s model scheme and make it publicly available.
You can view the ICO’s model publication scheme here.
Our published guide to information
Schools should publish a guide to information alongside the publication scheme.
The guide should specify:
- the documents available
- the format of the documents
- any charges made for the information

Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR), we are required to provide certain information to data subjects (the people we hold information about). This is normally through a through a privacy or ‘fair processing notice’. Our privacy notice tells you what data we collect, why, how we will store it and how lng we will keep it.

You have the right to withdraw permission for some information we hold about your child and yourself. We provide an opportunity at least annually to review this data on the ‘Data Collection’ form sent out at the start of each academic year, but you can request to see or make changes at any time by contacting the school office.
