Personal information is often records that can identify and relate to a living person. This can also include information that when put together with other information can then identify a person, for example online identifiers or location data.
We use personal information to help us run the school effectively, deliver a quality education, and safeguard pupils and staff. Please see our service specific notices which explains how we use personal information for each of our activities.
The law provides you with a number of rights to control the processing of your personal information
You have the right to ask for all the information we have about you. When we receive a request from you in writing, we must normally give you access to everything we have recorded about you. However, we will not let you see any parts of your record which contain:
You should let us know if you disagree with something written on your file. We may not always be able to change or remove the information; however, we will correct factual inaccuracies and may include your comments in the records. Please use the contact details above to report inaccurate information.
Sometimes, for example where we receive a request to transfer school records to a new school, it is necessary to send that information outside of the UK. In such circumstances additional protection will be applied to that information during its transfer, and where the receiving country does not have an adequacy decision, advice will be sought from the Information Commissioners Office prior to the information being sent.
Our retention schedule lists how long your information may be kept for different purposes. A copy of our retention schedule can be requested from our school office.
