We hold personal data about pupils to support teaching and learning, to provide pastoral care and to assess how the school is performing. We may also receive data about pupils from other organisations including but not limited to, other schools, local authorities and the Department for Education.
This data includes, but is not restricted to:
- Contact details
- Results of internal assessments and externally set tests
- Data on pupil characteristics, such as ethnic group or special educational needs
- Exclusion information
- Details of any medical conditions.
We will only retain the data we collect for as long as is necessary to satisfy the purpose for which it has been collected.
We will not share information about pupils with anyone without consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so. Individuals who wish to receive a copy of the information that we hold about them/their child should refer to the Subject Access Request of the school’s Data Protection Policy.
We are required by law, to pass certain information about pupils to specific external bodies, such as our local authority and the Department for Education, so that they are able to meet their statutory obligations.
