Privacy Notice: How we use Pupil Information in 新澳门六合彩开奖网 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (regulation (EU) 2016/679).

We at 新澳门六合彩开奖网, are a data controller for the purposes of GDPR. We collect information from you and may receive information about you from your previous school and the Learning Records Service.

Consent will be sought from the child after the age of 13 if we consider they have the competence to consent for themselves (often referred to as the Gillick competence test). If there is any doubt parental consent will continue to be required.

The categories of pupil information that we collect, process, hold and share include:

  • Personal data (such as name, unique pupil number and address);
  • Characteristics (such as ethnicity, language, nationality, country of birth and free school meal eligibility);
  • Attendance information (such as sessions attended, number of absences and absence reasons).
  • Assessment information (such as reports, feedback, test data and exam results)
  • Relevant medical information (such as medication details, allergies, medical conditions and notes from meetings/GPs/other health care professionals)
  • Special Educational Needs information (such as Education and Health Care Plans (EHCPs), Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and notes from review meetings and professional assessments)
  • Exclusion and behaviour information
  • Post 16 learning information and destination data

We use the pupil data:

  • To support pupil learning;

Collecting pupil information

Whilst the majority of pupil information you provide to us is mandatory, some of it is provided to us on a voluntary basis. In order to comply with the GDPR, we will inform you whether you are required to provide certain pupil information to us or if you have a choice in this. We may also receive information about pupils from other organisations such as their previous school, local authority and/or Department for Education (DfE).

Storing pupil data

The length of time we hold pupil information is set out in the IRMS retention guidance. A copy of this guidance is available at or alternatively a hard copy can be made available upon request from school.

Who we share pupil information with

We routinely share pupil information with:

  • schools that the pupils attend after leaving us;
  • Cumbria County Council;
  • the Department for Education (DfE);
  • other public services that have a lawful right to collect pupil information
  • third parties as listed in Appendix 6 of the GDPR policy.

Why we share pupil information

We do not share information about our pupils with anyone without consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so.

We share pupil information with the DfE on a statutory basis. This information sharing underpins school funding and educational attainment policy and monitoring. We are required to share information about our pupils with the DfE under regulation 5 of The Education (Information About Individual Pupils) (England) Regulations 2013.

Youth support services

Pupils aged 13+

Once our pupils reach the age of 13 we will pass pupil information including name, date of birth, address, contact telephone numbers and destination after leaving school to Inspira as they have responsibilities in relation to the education of 13-19 year olds under section 507B of the Education Act 1996 and The Education and Schools Act 2008. This enables them to provide services as follows:

  • youth support services;
  • careers advisers.

A parent or guardian can request that only their child鈥檚 name, address and date of birth is passed on to Inspira by informing the Headteacher鈥檚 PA or admin office. This right is transferred to the pupil once they are 13.

 

Pupils aged 16+

We will also share certain information about pupils aged 16+ with Inspira including name, date of birth, address, contact telephone numbers and destination after leaving school as they have responsibilities in relation to the education of 13-19 year olds under section 507B of the Education Act 1996 and The Education and Schools Act 2008. This enables them to provide services as follows:

  • post-16 education and training providers;
  • youth support services;
  • careers advisers.

The National Pupil Database (NPD)

The NPD is owned and managed by the DfE and contains information about pupils in schools in England. It provides evidence on educational performance to inform independent research, as well as studies commissioned by the DfE. It is held in electronic format for statistical purposes. This information is securely collected from a range of sources including schools, local authorities and awarding bodies.

We are required by law, to provide information about our pupils to the DfE as part of statutory data collections such as the school census and early years鈥 census. Some of this information is then stored in the NPD. The law that allows this is the Education (Information About Individual Pupils) (England) Regulations 2013.

To find out more about the NPD go to: .

The DfE may share information about our pupils from the NPD with third parties who promote the education or well-being of children in England by:

  • conducting research or analysis;
  • producing statistics;
  • providing information, advice or guidance.

The DfE has robust processes in place to ensure the confidentiality of our data is maintained and there are stringent controls in place regarding access and use of the data. Decisions on whether the DfE releases data to third parties are subject to an approval process and based on a detailed assessment of:

  • who is requesting the data;
  • the purpose for which it is required;
  • the level and sensitivity of data requested; and
  • the arrangements in place to store and handle the data.

To be granted access to pupil information, organisations must comply with strict terms and conditions covering the confidentiality and handling of the data, security arrangements and retention and use of the data.
