Subject Access Request

Under data protection legislation an individual has the right, subject to certain exemptions, to access the personal information that an organisation holds about them. Accessing personal data in this way is known as making a subject access request.  (Subject access requests are different to requests submitted under FOI legislation, which relate to information about the organisation itself.)

If you wish to make a subject access request to the Academy, your request must be made in writing (this may be in electronic form) to the Headteacher at

On receipt of your completed request, once your identity has been verified, and sufficient details to enable us to locate the information has been obtained, the Academy is obliged to respond within 40 calendar days. The information will be supplied subject to any applicable exemptions. The data will be provided as of the date of receipt of your request.

If you have any reason to believe that the Academy has not dealt correctly with your request, please contact the clerk to governors at If you are still not satisfied, you should contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
