Privacy Notice - Data Protection Act 1998


We, Barwic Parade Community Primary School, are a data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998. 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:


•           Support your teaching and learning;

•           Monitor and report on your progress;

•           Provide appropriate pastoral care, and

•           Assess how well your school is doing.


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 any 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 do so.


We are required by law to pass some of your information to the local authority, North Yorkshire County Council, and the Department for Education (DfE) and where appropriate we will send to relevant national health service personnel (e.g. school nurses) information on individual pupils changing school (or address) to ensure continuity of health care.  If a child moves to another school we will ensure a handover of appropriate data we hold, and we will cooperate with other schools she/he has attended to endeavour to complete any outstanding issues.


If you want to see a copy of the information we hold and share about you then please contact Barwic Parade Community Primary School.
