As an educational provider, our school has an obligation to publish a freedom of information statement, outlining how we will meet our duties under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and associated regulations. The development and effective implementation of this policy fulfils that requirement.
More specifically, this policy outlines:
• How our school will respond to requests from individuals for access to information held about them.
• Our school’s policy and procedures for the release and publication of private data and public records.
• Our school’s policy and procedures for providing applicants with advice and assistance throughout the duration of their requests.
It also clarifies our position regarding the appropriate limit to the costs incurred by the school in obtaining any requested information, and on charging fees for its provision
