Data Protection Act 2018: How we use pupil and parent information

We collect and hold personal information relating to our pupils and parents and may also receive information about them from previous schools, local authorities and/or the Department for Education (DfE). We use this personal data to:

  • support our pupils’ learning and wellbeing
  • monitor and report on their progress
  • provide appropriate pastoral care; and
  • assess the quality of our services
  • safeguard children

This information will include their contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information, any exclusion information and details about where they go after they leave us. The school will also process Sensitive Personal Data which may include personal characteristics such as ethnicity, and any special educational needs a child may have as well as relevant medical information. Sensitive Personal Data is only processed where it is legally necessary, in the interests of the data subject or where there is specific consent from the data subject. GDPR letter for parents/carers.

The school has privacy notices in respect of privacy notice for parents/carers   and pupils .

For more information on how the school processes personal data please see the school’s Data Protection Policy . We are required, by law, to pass certain information about our pupils to our local authority (LA) and the Department for Education (DfE). DfE may also share pupil level personal data that we supply to them, with third parties. This will only take place where legislation allows it to do so and it is in compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation.

The school is supported by a Data Protection Officer (Mr. Chris Williams), who is responsible for ensuring that the school is compliant with data protection legislation and good practice.

We will not give information about our pupils to anyone without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so.

Parents are entitled to request a copy of the information about themselves or their child that we hold. Copies of this information is provided free of charge unless the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. In which case the school may charge a reasonable fee. To make such a request please contact:

  • Mrs Wendy Brace, via the school office
