Freedom of Information Requests

The Freedom of Information Act, Environmental Information Regulations and INSPIRE Regulations give you rights to access official information. This does not grant you access to your own data/information, this must be accessed via a Subject Access Request (see below).

Under the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations you have a right to request any recorded information held by John Taylor Multi-Academy Trust. For more information regarding the Freedom of Information Act please visit the ICO’s wesbite and our own policies page.

Before you request information

Before requesting you should:

Making your request

When sending us a request you should:

  • be specific about the information you want, providing a time frame if you can
  • let us know how you’d like to receive the information (by post, email, or in person)
  • provide contact details in case we need to discuss the request with you

If your request is for information that falls within one of the Act’s exemptions we will tell you which one and in most cases why the information can’t be given.

Subject Access Requests

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) grants you the “right to access” otherwise known as a “Subject Access Request”. This allows you or an individual acting on your behalf to request information we hold about you. More information can be found on the ICO’s website.

Making your request

When sending a request we ask you to complete this form. This will allow us to verify your identity and will assist us in locating any information you require.
