Scheme of Publication

Mount Hawke Academy is committed to complying with and implementing the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (2000) and related legislation. This provides a general entitlement to any person to be able to access information held by the schools, subject to exemptions and conditions laid down by law.

This policy applies to all information held by schools regardless of how it was created or received. It applies irrespective of the media on which the information is stored and whether the information is recorded on paper or held electronically. The Act’s powers are fully retrospective and thus information is accessible no matter how old it may be. Similarly, information in draft form will also be accessible under the Act.

We will offer advice and assistance to anybody wishing to make a request for information.

It should be noted that access to personal information (that is information from which a living individual can be identified) is still governed under the Data Protection Act 2018. Requests for access to such information will be governed in line with the requirements of this legislation.

With the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now in effect, we would like to inform you that we have updated our privacy notices.
