Privacy Notice - Data Protection Act 1998: How we use your information
We, The John Hampden School Wendover, are a data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect personal information from you about your child and may receive information about your child from their previous school or college, the Local Authority, the Department of Education (DfE) and the Learning Records Service. The school holds this personal data and uses it to:
- Support our pupils’ teaching and learning
- Monitor and report on their progress
- Provide appropriate pastoral care
- Assess the quality of our services.
This information that we hold includes children’s contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information, any exclusions information, where they go after they leave us and personal characteristics such as ethnic group, any special educational needs they may have as well as relevant medical information. If your child is enrolling for post-14 qualifications we will be provided with their unique learner number (ULN) by the Learning Records Service and may also obtain from them details of any learning or qualifications they have undertaken.
We will not give information about your child to anyone without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to.
We are required by law to pass some information about your child to the Local Authority (LA) and the Department for Education (DfE).
