Freedom of information

The Funding Agreement for Compass School Southwark was signed in August 2013. Since opening, Compass School Southwark has recieved a number of Freedom of Information requests. As a school we have two duties when responding to requests:

  • to tell the applicant whether you hold any information falling within the scope of their request; and
  • to provide that information.
Please find below our response to FoI requests which have been recieved since September 2013:
