We use personal information, for example:

  • Date of birth
  • Education attainment
  • Emergency contacts
  • Family relationships
  • General case information.


We also use some special category personal information, for example:

This information is provided by parent/carers, the local authority and any previous education settings.  It is used to deliver our statutory education duties and assure the health and wellbeing of our pupils.


The school is the Data Controller for this information. Our legal basis for using personal data for this purpose is Legal Obligation and A Task in the Public Interest.  A list of relevant legislation can be seen in section 4 of the main privacy notice. Our legal basis for processing special category personal data is Substantial Public Interest (Data Protection Act 2018 Schedule 1, Part 2, section 6 (2) (a)).


This information may be shared in order to provide our education service.  Please note we only share information required for that particular purpose and then only the minimum required.  We may share information with:

  • Health Providers
  • Other Education Providers

This information will be held for 25 years from the date of birth of the student.  When a pupil changes school, this record will go with them and will not be retained by the previous school, other than to meet statutory returns.


Our school management system is provided under contract and they act as data processors for this information.


No personal information is routinely available outside of the UK.  Should a transfer of personal information be necessary we will only do so where it is permitted by law and where appropriate safeguards are in place.
