ROSEHILL INFANT & NURSERY SCHOOL
Data Protection Act 1998: How we use your information
Rosehill Infant and Nursery School is a ‘data controller’ for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect and process personal information relating to our pupils and may receive information about them from a previous school or college, local authority, the Department for Education [DfE] and the Learning Records Service.
We hold this personal data to:
Information we hold about our pupils will include their contact details, family information, 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.
We are required, by law, to pass certain information about our pupils to Derby City Council, our local authority [LA], and the Department for Education [DfE]. Information may also be shared with a third party if this will be of specific benefit to our children, but only if we are satisfied that their data protection procedures are in accordance with ours. We will obtain the data protection policy document from any third party we use, and this will be available from the school office if you have any queries about it.
It may be necessary to give information to the emergency services if the need ever arose with a pupil injuring themselves or being involved in a serious incident. They are data controllers in respect of the data they receive, and are subject to the same legal constraints in how they deal with the data.
We will not give your personal data to anyone without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to.
Pupils as data subjects, have certain rights under the Data Protection Act, including a general right to be given access to personal data held about them by the data controller. The presumption is that by the age of 12 a child has sufficient maturity to understand their rights and to make their own access request, if they wish. A parent would normally be expected to make a request on a child’s behalf if the child is younger. Parents may also request access on their own behalf regarding information held on themselves. This request must be made in writing.
