Privacy Notice – Data Protection Act 1998
Salendine Nook High School processes personal data about its pupils and is a “data controller” for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998. We collect information from you, and may receive information from a previous school.
We hold this personal data and use it to support teaching and learning, monitor and report on progress, provide appropriate pastoral care, and assess how well the school is doing.
This information includes contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information*, characteristics such as ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information.
We will not give any of this information to anyone outside of the school, other than the agencies listed below, without your consent or unless the law requires it.
We are required by law to pass some of your information to the Local Authority (LA), the Department for Education (DfE) and Youth Support Services (for children of 13 years and over). The school is legally required to pass on certain information to the provider of Youth Support services in their area. This is the local authority support service for young people aged 13 to 19 in England. The school must provide the name and address of the pupil and their parents and any further information relevant to the support services’ role. In addition, the date of birth of the pupil is supplied.
Youth Support services pass on some of the information they collect to the Department for Education (DfE) to enable them to assess the local authorities’ performance and determine the destinations of young people after they have left compulsory education. If you require more information about how the DfE store and use your information then please go to the following website:
Data may also be shared with post 16 providers to secure appropriate support on entry to post 16 provision.
Until pupils are aged 16 or older, their parent(s) can ask that no information beyond their children’s name, address and date of birth (and their own name and address) be passed to the youth support services provider. This right transfers to the pupil on their 16th birthday. Pupils and/or parents will need to inform the school if this is what they wish.
Online information, advice and support on a range of issues affecting young people can be found on the Gov.UK website at: www.direct.gov.uk with access to trained helpline advisers, via SMS text message, telephone, web chat and email.
You have the right to know what information we hold and share about you. If you want to see a copy of the information then please contact the Head Teacher at the school.
