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.

 View the ICO's model publication scheme here.

The guide should specify:

The publication scheme provides a guide to the information which we will publish. This is split into categories of information known as classes as detailed within our published guide to information below.
