‘Personal data’ means information that can identify a living individual.

The regulation applies to all schools from 25 May 2018, and will apply even after the UK leaves the EU.

Freedom of Information

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.

Our published guide to information

Schools should publish a guide to information alongside the publication scheme.

The guide should specify:
