Publication Scheme


For the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 University Academy 92 Limited is classed as a public authority, meaning that it is subject to the Act.


Section 19 of the Act mandates that Public Authorities must make certain information publically available. A Publication Scheme is a clear and structured way of presenting this information. University Academy 92’s Publication Scheme has been designed in line with the Information Commissioner’s Office Model Publication Scheme for higher education institutions.

The Publication Scheme is a guide to the information that UA92 proactively publishes in order to comply with our obligations under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Subject Access

Under the Data Protection Act any individual has the right to make a Subject Access Request.


What is Subject Access? 

Subject Access allows an individual to see almost any personal data held about them by UA92. UA92 will seek to respond fully to any such request, subject to certain exemptions, as transparency in the use of an individual’s data is at the core of the UA92’s Data Protection policy.


Who can request information? 

  • The individual whose information is held (the data subject) e.g. a student requesting access to their own information held by the UA92.

  • A third party acting on behalf of the individual – evidence that they are acting on behalf of the data subject must be provided.


All requests for subject access should be directed to compliance@ua92.ac.uk 

Freedom of Information

What is Freedom of Information? ×

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) gives people the general right to see recorded information held by public authorities.

Under FOI, anybody may request information from any public authority, including higher education institutions, which has functions in England, Wales and/or Northern Ireland.


The Act confers two statutory rights on applicants:

  • To be told whether or not the public authority holds the information they request; and if so,
  • To have that information communicated to them.


The Act means that University Academy 92 Limited is legally required to answer all written enquiries and requests for information from any person or organisation in the world within 20 working days, subject to certain exemptions.

The public also have access to information within the Publication Scheme.

What is a valid request? ×

In order to be valid any requests must:

  • Be in writing.
  • Include the requester’s real name.
  • Include an address for correspondence.
  • Describe the information requested.

What is the publication scheme? ×

Under the FOIA, public authorities such as UA92 are required to have a publication scheme.


Under the FOIA, public authorities such as UA92 are required to have a publication scheme. A publication scheme is a guide that tells people about the broad classes of information which public authorities will routinely make available to the public. It includes information held in any form e.g. on websites, paper files and public registers.

UA92 has adopted the Information Commissioner’s Model Publication Scheme for Higher Education Institutions. The Information Commissioner is an independent regulator who enforces and advises on the FOIA and has produced and approved this scheme. A copy of the Model Publication Scheme for Higher Education Institutions and further information about the Information Commissioner is available via its website www.ico.org.uk.


By adopting the Information Commissioner’s Model Scheme, UA92 has committed to:


  • Proactively publish information (including environmental information) which is held by it and contained within each class.

  • Provide a means by which UA92 can make the public aware of the types of information it will make readily available, how they can access that information and whether or not they will have to pay for it.

  • Review and update the information on a regular basis.


The Model Publication Scheme contains seven ‘classes’ of information. UA92 is committed to making available to the public information it holds which falls within these seven broad classes:


  • Who we are and what we do;

  • What we spend and how we spend it;

  • What our priorities are and how we are doing;

  • How we make decisions;

  • Our policies and procedures;

  • Lists and registers;

  • The services we offer.


How do I make a Freedom of Information request? ×

Please note that the Information Commissioner's Office has ruled that applicants must provide their real name. Requests from applicants using pseudonyms may be refused. 

Costs for information provided following an FOI request ×

We aim to provide as much information as possible on its website, free of charge. Information within the publication scheme can be found via the website search facility using the search terms set out in the Guide to Information or will be made available on request, in cases where it is not practical to include it on the website.


Where information cannot be made available free of charge, we may charge to cover the cost of actual disbursements such as: 

  • Photocopying.

  • Printing.

  • Postage and packaging.

  • The cost directly incurred as a result of viewing information.

Any charges will be specified within the publication scheme and will be in accordance with the UA92 policy. 

See our Freedom of Information Policy for further information.
