Freedom of Information

In line with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Newham College is committed to making information about the College and its work available to the public.

The College has therefore adopted a model publication scheme, which gives details of all the documents which can be requested by the public.

To request information available through our publication scheme (below), please contact:-

Clerk to the Corporation
Newham College of Further Education
East Ham Campus
High Street South
E6 6ER

Next to each class we have indicated the manner in which the information described will be available. We have also indicated whether charges apply to material in each class.

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, you have the right to request any information held by a public authority, which it has not already made available through its publication scheme. Requests have to be made in writing and, in general, public authorities will have 20 working days to respond. We may charge a fee, which will have to be calculated according to Fees Regulations. We will not be required to release information to which an exemption in the Act legitimately applies. However, we may be required to explain to the applicant why we are not releasing information, which might have to be justified to the Information Commissioner.

It is important that this publication scheme meets your needs. If you find the scheme difficult to understand, please let us know. We also welcome suggestions as to how our scheme might be improved. Any questions, comments or complaints about this scheme should be sent in writing to the Clerk using the address given above.

If we are unable to resolve any complaint, you can complain to the Information Commissioner, the independent body who oversees the Freedom of Information Act:

Information Commissioner
Wycliffe House
Water Lane
