Our school works hard to ensure that we comply with the requirements of GDPR and the Data Protection Act*.
*Data Protection Act: How we use pupil information
*General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
Who do we share pupils information with?
We routinely share pupil information with:
- Schools or colleges that the pupils attend after leaving us
- Our local authority and their commissioned providers of local authority services
- The Department of Education (DfE)
- Educational providers that we as a school commission to enhance our curriculum offer
Storing pupil Information
At St Francis we keep information about your child on our computer systems and also sometimes on paper.
We hold your child’s educational records securely. Any essential records on an individual child follow them through their education establishments, where St Francis holds a record of the schools each child has moved to.
There are strict controls on who can see your information. The school protects all data and will pay particular attention to the security of especially sensitive data. Parents / carers will be asked for their consent for the school to process some specific data (such as photographs).
As a parent/carer you will receive some letters from us regarding GDPR. Some of those may be about consent and some about updating your information with us.
The Data Protection Officer is responsible for overseeing data protection within the School. If you have any questions please contact the School office or Headteacher.
