Pupil’s Privacy Notice and Data Protection
Academy Data Protection Coordinator: Mrs. Sarah Spencer
At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we aim to provide a positive and aspirational learning environment to support all our pupils in moving their life chances. In order to achieve this we need to work with parents, pupils, academy councillors, trustees, the local authority, government departments and carefully selected companies.
Our school aim to ensure that all personal data received about pupils is collected, stored and processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018. As we take privacy seriously, personal data is only used in conjunction with providing the best possible care and education for your child, to support teaching and learning, monitor and report on your child’s progress and to provide appropriate pastoral care.
Schools must now provide parents with the opportunity to op-in or out of data sharing. We will never release personal information so anyone outside of the school without your consent, unless the law permits it. If you haven’t already done so please complete a consent form and return it to school as soon as possible. This will ensure that the school has accurate information and parental as appropriate.
If you change your mind at any time you can let us know by completing a new consent form and returning it to the school office.
