We, The Willows C of E Primary School, are a data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect information from you and may receive information about you from your previous school and the Learning Records Service. We hold this personal data and use it to:
This information includes your contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information and personal characteristics such as your ethnic group, any special educational needs and relevant medical information. We will not give information about you to anyone outside the school without your consent unless the law and our rules allow us to.
We are required by law to pass some information about you to the Local Authority and the Department for Education (DfE). This sharing of information also applies to agencies that are prescribed in law, such as, Ofsted, the Education Funding Agency (EFA), the Department of Health (DoH) and Skills Funding Agency that require access to data for the Learner Records Service. All these agencies are data controllers in respect of the data they receive and are subject to the same legal constraints by law in how they deal with the data.
If you want to see a copy of the information about you that we hold and/or share, please contact Alison Staley, School Manager.
