Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 states that public authorities, including all schools, should be clear and proactive about the information they make public.

Our publication scheme sets out:

  • The classes of information which we publish
  • The manner in which the information will be published and whether the information is available free of charge or on payment
  • That some of the information that we hold may not be made public, for example personal information

This publication scheme conforms to the model scheme for schools approved by the Information Commissioner.

The publication scheme guides you to information which we currently publish (or have recently published) or which we will publish in the future. This is split into the following categories of information:

  • Who we are and what we do
  • What we spend and how we spend it
  • What our priorities are and how we are doing
  • How we make decisions
  • Our policies and procedures
  • Lists and registers
  • The services we offer

Information published on our website is free to view. Single copies of information covered by this publication are provided free to parents or prospective parents, unless stated otherwise. If your request incurs a large amount of photocopying or printing, a large postage charge, or is for a priced item such as some printed publications or videos we will let you know the cost before fulfilling your request.

If you require a paper version of any of the documents on our website, please contact the school by telephone, email or letter.
