Freedom of Information

From 1 September 2016 the Freedom of Information Act (2002) has applied to Jordanhill School. In responding to requests for information the school has, however, acted as if the Act did apply since its inception in 2002. 

All Scottish public authorities (including Jordanhill School) must prepare and maintain a “publication scheme” which specifies the classes of information which each authority publishes or intends to publish, how it publishes the information (or how it intends to do so), and indicates whether information is provided free or for a charge. All publication schemes require to be approved by the Scottish Information Commissioner, an independent official responsible for overseeing the operation of freedom of information in Scotland.
