Data Protection Act 1998: How we use your information
We process personal information relating to our pupils and may receive information about them from their previous school or college, local authority, the Department for Education (DfE) and the Learning Records Service. We hold 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
Information about our pupils that we hold 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.
We will not give information about you to anyone without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to.
We are required, by law, to pass some information about you to the Department for Education (DfE). This information will, in turn, then be made available for use by the LA.
If you need more information about how our local authority and/or DfE collect and use your information, please visit:
- our local authority at http://www.portsmouth.gov.uk/ and search for "privacy notice" or
- the DfE website at https://www.gov.uk/data-protection-how-we-collect-and-share-research-data
