FREEDOM OF INFORMATION

Guide to information

Freedom of information (FOI) law requires Scottish public authorities to produce and maintain a publication scheme. Authorities are under a legal obligation to:

  • publish the classes of information that they make routinely available
  • tell the public how to access the information and what it might cost.
  • Eden Park Academy – Dunfermline is a Scottish public authority under FOI law and it has adopted the Model Publication Scheme produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner. View the Model Publication Scheme at www.itspublicknowledge.info/mps

    The purpose of this Guide to Information is to:

    • let you to see what information Eden Park Academy publishes under each class of the Model Publication Scheme
    • tell you how to find the information easily
    • tell you about any charges for the information
    • give contact details for enquiries and help with accessing the information
    • explain how to request information we haven’t published

    Availability and formats

    The information we publish through the Model Publication Scheme is, wherever possible, available on our website. We offer alternative arrangements for people who do not want to, or cannot, access the information online or by inspection at our premises. For example, we can usually arrange to send information to you in paper copy (although there may be a charge for this).

    Exempt information

    We will publish the information we hold that falls within the classes of information below. If a document contains information that is exempt under Scotland’s freedom of information laws (for example sensitive personal information or a trade secret), we may remove or redact the information before publication but we will explain why.

    Copyright

    Eden Park Academy has adopted the Open Government Licence (OGL) for the information it publishes through this Guide. You can view the OGL here: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/. This sets out what you can and cannot do with our published information where we are the copyright holder.

    Where Eden Park Academy does not hold the copyright in information we publish, we will make that clear in this guide.

    Charges

    There is no charge to view information on our website or at our premises.

    We may charge for providing information to you e.g., photocopying and postage, but we will charge you no more than it actually costs us to do so. We will always tell you what the cost is before providing the information to you.

    Our photocopying charge per sheet of paper is shown in the table below:

    Size of Paper Pence per single sided copy
    (black and white)
    Pence per single sided copy
    (colour)
    A4 1.5 4.0
    A3 2.85 5.5

    We will recharge any postage costs at the rate we paid to send the information to you. When providing copies of pre-printed publications, we will charge no more than the cost per copy of the total print run.

    We do not pass on any other costs to you for our published information.

    This charging schedule does not apply to our commercial publications (see Class 8 below). These items are offered for sale through retail outlets such as book shops, academic journal websites or museum shops and their price reflects a ‘market value’ which may include the cost of production.
