Data Protection

 

The existing Data Protection Act (1998) is being superseded by a new Data Protection Bill (2018) currently passing through parliament. This is based on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which applies to the EU. This comes into force from May 25th 2018.

As a Data Controller for both Student, and Workforce, personal data we have a duty to share our polices and privacy notices with our stake holders.

 

 

Please find below, our Pupil / Family privacy notice and our School Workforce privacy notice.

The majority of the personal data we collect is covered under the lawful basis of Public Task , Legal Obligation or Contract. However, some element also requires consent. Our Consent form is below, along with the supporting documentation.

Consent Guidelines

 

During Year 9 we have to register our learners with HM Government to obtain a ULN (Unique Learners Number) in order to enter them for examinations. To obtain this ULN we have to share pupil data, although this is covered by the Education Act and our own Privacy Notice (above) we are also obliged to share their Privacy Notice with you. This can be found by clicking on the link below, on the Exams page of our Website and on the Data Protection noticeboard in school.

This page will continue to grow, with the addition of relevant policies and guidelines.
