freedom of information

One of the aims of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 is that public authorities, including all maintained schools, should be clear and proactive about the information they will make public. 

To do this the federation must publish a Publication Scheme and a supporting Guide to Information, setting out: 

•          the classes of information which we publish or intend to publish; 

•          the manner in which the information will be made available; and  

•          whether the information is available free of charge or on payment. 

All information in our Publication Scheme is available to you on request. However, not all information that we hold can be made public; for example personal information. 

Publication Scheme  

Under the Freedom of Information Act, all schools must adopt the following model publication scheme which has been approved by the Information Commissioner.

Publication Scheme: Guide to Information  

Schools must also publish a guide to information that accompanies the publication scheme.  

This guide specifies:  

  • the documents available  
  • the format of the documents  
  • any charges made for the information
