The Model Publication Scheme provides a list of the information routinely published by educational institutions which the ICO expects them to make available unless:

  • They do not hold the information
  • The information is exempt under one of the FOI exemptions or Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) exceptions, or its release is prohibited under another statute
  • The information is archived, out of date or otherwise inaccessible; or, it would be impractical or resource-intensive to prepare the material for routine release

The Model Publication Scheme and definition document can be downloaded by following the links from https://ico.org.uk/

The information the group routinely publish falls into the following categories – these have been determined by the ICO:

  • 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
