Data Protection statement
The school holds information on pupils to support their teaching and learning, to monitor and report on their progress, to provide appropriate pastoral care, and to assess how well the school as a whole is doing. This information includes contact details, National Curriculum assessment results, attendance information, personal characteristics such as ethnic group, special education needs and any relevant medical information. From time to time schools are required to pass on some of this data to Local Authorities, the Department for Education (DfE) and to agencies that are prescribed by law, such as Ofsted, the Department of Health (DH) and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs)
