Data Protection Act 1998: How we use pupil information
We collect and hold personal information relating to our pupils and may also receive information about them from their previous school, local authority and/or the Department for Education (DfE). We use this personal data to:
- support our pupils’ learning
- monitor and report on their progress
- provide appropriate pastoral care; and
- assess the quality of our services
This information will include their contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information, any exclusion information, where they go after they leave us and personal characteristics such as their ethnic group, any special educational needs they may have as well as relevant medical information. For pupils enrolling for post 14 qualifications, the Learning Records Service will give us the unique learner number (ULN) and may also give us details about your learning or qualifications.
Once our pupils reach the age of 13, the law requires us to pass on certain information to the local authority in which the school is located who have responsibilities in relation to the education or training of 13-19 year olds. We may also share certain personal data relating to children aged 16 and over with post-16 education and training providers in order to secure appropriate services for them. A parent/guardian can request that only their child’s name, address and date of birth be passed to the local authority by informing the school office / administrator. This right is transferred to the child once he/she reaches the age 16. For more information about services for young people, please visit the relevant local authority website.
We will not give information about our pupils to anyone without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so. If you want to receive a copy of the information about your son/daughter that we hold, please contact the school office / administrator.
We are required, by law, to pass some information about our pupils to the Department for Education (DfE). This information will, in turn, then be made available for use by the local authority.
DfE may also share pupil level personal data that we supply to them, with third parties. This will only take place where legislation allows it to do so and it is in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
Decisions on whether DfE releases this personal data to third parties are subject to a robust approval process and are 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 level data, requestors must comply with strict terms and conditions covering the confidentiality and handling of data, security arrangements and retention and use of the data.

For information on which third party organisations (and for which project) pupil level data has been provided to, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-pupil-database-requests-received

Latest Ofsted Report
Amongst other things Ofsted said that, "Pupils reach high standards and all groups, including disabled pupils and those who have special needs as well as those pupils who are looked after, make good progress."
"Teaching is good. Teachers provide interesting activities which challenge pupils and, because of this, pupils work hard and make good progress."
"Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding and enables them to concentrate on their learning. Relationships across all groups are good and pupils show positive attitudes in a wellordered and happy school. They feel safe, know whom to ask for help if it is needed, and have a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe."
