Freedom of Information Requests

Guidance & resources for Schools on how to deal with Freedom of Information Requests.

Guide for Schools – Handling FOI requests

The EA Information Governance Team have developed the below document for the purpose of assisting schools (i.e. School Management) to understand and comply with the schools’ obligations under the Freedom of Information Act. The document explains what an FOI request is, how to comply with and apply the FOIA and contains some templates which we hope that schools will find useful when corresponding with information requesters.

Should your school require any additional advice and guidance on handling a Freedom of Information Request, they can contact the EA Information Governance Team to request further support by calling 028 8241 1300 or by emailing [email protected].
