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.


WellComm (Infant and Primary Schools)


WellComm speech and Language tool screening test results on individual children in nursery and reception may be passed to the Local Authority.  These results may be matched to other data held by the Local authority and used to produce school and group level statistics.  It will not be possible to identify individual pupils from the statistics.


We are required, by law, to pass certain information about our pupils to our local authority (LA) and the Department for Education (DfE).


If you need more information about how our local authority and/or DfE collect and use your information, please visit:
