It’s Official – Tidemill Academy – And Still Many Questions Unanswered!

Whilst we have been away over the summer:-

  • Tidemill Primary School has officially become an Academy; the registered charity name is Tidemill Community Academy Trust, a company limited by guarantee.

 

  • The logo on the school uniform has changed and the school has introduced new jackets at £17.00  – could this be the start of ever increasing costs to parents and careers?

 

  • Unfortunately there has been a delay in preparations for the move to the newly built Deptford Lounge & Tidemill School – instead of being ready for the start of the school year as originally planned, the children will not be attending the new site until the end of this term at the earliest.

 

  • The FoI Commissioner has concluded its investigation into the school’s arrangements for recording its key financial  decisions and found amongst other things that the governing body at Tidemill Primary School had breached section 11(1)(a) of the Act by failing to provide the information electronically. It has also breached section 1(1)(a) of the Act by failing to confirm it did not hold information, and section 10(1) by failing to comply with section 1(1) within the statutory time for compliance.

This campaign will be paying close attention to the workings of the new governance structure which, we fear, may lead to even less transparency, potentially distancing parents even further from the school’s core decision-making processes.

    Very Disturbing reading
    Case Ref: FS50356379
    Date: 28/07/2011
    Public Authority: Tidemill Primary School
    Summary: The complainant submitted requests to the governing body of Tidemill Primary School (‘the governing body’) for information from meetings. The complainant specified that she wished to receive this information electronically. The governing body provided some information, but stated that it would not provide the remaining information in the complainant’s preferred format. The Commissioner has investigated and found that the governing body was entitled to refuse to comply with the part of the complainant’s request to receive information electronically. However, in relation to another part of the request, it has breached section 11(1)(a) of the Act by failing to provide the information electronically. It has also breached section 1(1)(a) of the Act by failing to confirm it did not hold information, and section 10(1) by failing to comply with section 1(1) within the statutory time for compliance. The Commissioner requires the governing body to disclose some further information to the complainant electronically.
