Freedom of Information Policy

Publication Scheme
Re: Freedom of Information Act (2000)

Our full title and address for sending requests for any documents is: Oldbury on Severn CE VC Primary School, Church Rd, Oldbury on Severn, Thornbury, Bristol, BD35 1QG.

The person responsible for maintenance of this scheme is: Debbie Dix.

1. Introduction: what a publication scheme is and why it has been developed

One of the aims of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (which is referred to as FoIA in the rest of this document) is that public authorities, including all maintained schools, should be clear and proactive about the information they will make public.

To do this we must produce a publication scheme, setting out:

  • The classes of information which we publish or intend to publish;
  • The manner in which the information will be published; and
  • Whether the information is available free of charge or on payment.

The scheme covers information already published and information which is to be published in the future. All information in our publication scheme is available in paper form in the school office.

Some information which 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.

2. Categories of information published

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 categories of

information known as 'classes'. These are contained in section 5 of this scheme.

The classes of information that we undertake to make available are organised into four broad topic areas:

  • School Prospectus - information published in the school prospectus.
  • Governors' Documents - information published in the Governors' Annual Report and in other governing body documents.
  • Pupils & Curriculum - information about policies that relate to pupils and the school curriculum.
  • School Policies - information about policies that relate to the school in general.

3. How to request information

You can request a copy of the information you want from the contact detailed below.

If the information you're looking for isn't available via the scheme [and isn't on our website], you can still ask if we have it. You can contact the school by telephone, fax, email or letter.

To help us process your request quickly, please clearly mark any correspondence "PUBLICATIONS SCHEME REQUEST" (in bold CAPITALS).

4. Paying for information

Single copies of information covered by this publication scheme are provided free unless stated otherwise. If your request means that we have to do a lot of photocopying or printing, or pay 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. Where there is a charge for a particular item this is indicated in the boxes in Section 5 by a £ sign following the description of the item.
