Freedom of Information & Data Protection

Freedom of Information

In the interests of greater openness and accountability across the public sector, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000 requires the Institution proactively to make information publicly available.


 Under Section 19 of the FOIA, each public authority must produce a publication scheme.
 
Leeds College of Music has adopted the generic model publication scheme developed for public authorities and is committed to publishing the information described in the Information Commissioner’s definition document for Higher Education institutions.
 
This publication scheme sets out the categories of information already published, or to be published in the future, and how this may be accessed. This is not a list of the actual publications, as this will change as new material is published or existing material revised. It is, however, the Institution's commitment to make available the information described.
 
The conservatoire may make a reasonable charge for information which is not available on its website. If information is required in hard copy, depending on the size and complexity of the request, a charge may be levied for this.
 
The conservatoire is obliged to respond in writing within 20 working days to Freedom of Information requests from any individual. You can expect us in our response to state whether we hold information of the type requested and, if so – and subject to certain exemptions (including Data Protection principles) – communicate it to you.
 
Requests for information to be supplied under the Freedom of Information Act may be made by contacting foi@lcm.ac.uk or by writing to:
 
Head of Policy and Planning
Leeds College of Music
3 Quarry Hill
Leeds
LS2 7PD
 
Requests for information about the Leeds City College Group should be addressed to Leeds City College using the contact details provided here.
 
General information on the Freedom of Information Act and the model publication scheme can be accessed on the Information Commissioner's website at www.ico.org.uk.

Data Protection

Data protection subject access requests 

Staff, students and other users of the conservatoire have the right to access any personal data that is held about them in any form. The conservatoire will charge the maximum Subject Access fee of £10 per request, as prescribed in the Data Protection (Subject Access) (Fees and Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2000. The conservatoire may waive this charge at its discretion.
 
Requests for access to personal information to be supplied under the Data Protection Act may be made by contacting foi@lcm.ac.uk or by writing to the address above. An applicant may only request information relating to themself. The conservatoire is obliged to respond to Subject Access Requests within 40 calendar days.
