Freedom of Information and School Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives members of the public the right to access official information held by Public Authorities. Requests should be made in writing to: 

admin.sthelens@school.hartlepool.gov.uk

or

St Helen's Primary School, Durham Street, Hartlepool, TS24 0HG

and will be dealt with within the statutory 20 working days. 

 

As well as responding to requests for information made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the school is required to publish information proactively. The Freedom of Information Act requires every school to have a publication scheme, approved by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), and to publish information covered by the scheme. The scheme sets out our commitment to make certain classes of information routinely available, such as policies and procedures, minutes of meetings, annual reports and financial information.

 

St Helen's Primary School have adopted the Information Commissioner's Model Publication Scheme in it's entirety and have priduced a guide to information which sets out the information we hold, where it can be obtained and whether a fee is payable.
