Privacy Notice for Pupils and Their Families (Declaration)
As a school, and as a Trust, we ensure that your data is kept safe and only used for the purposes that are required by law, unless we ask your permission to do anything else with it. Below are some important documents for you to read. Copies of these can be obtained from the school office if you need them.
We always ask consent to use your child's photograph. If you give us permission this can be withdrawn at any time at your request.
Our current school photographer is Vancols Photographers.
Freedom of Information: Publication Scheme
All public authorities, including schools, are required under the Freedom of Information Act to adopt a publication scheme that has been approved by the Information Commissioner.
There is currently one approved model publication scheme, which has been produced by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Schools must adopt the ICO’s model scheme and make it publicly available. This can be found in the 'Policy' section of our website or you can simply click here.
Published Guide of Information
Schools should publish a guide to information alongside the publication scheme.
The guide should specify:
- the documents available
- the format of the documents
- any charges made for the information
This can be found in the 'Policy' section of our website or you can simply click here.
