On 25th May 2018, new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force. Weetwood Primary School aims to comply in full with all of our obligations regarding data protection and Privacy.
Our Privacy policies, which detail how we store and use information we hold about our pupils, parents and visitors, are available from the school office. . 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.
A parent/carer can ask that no information apart from their child’s name, address and date of birth be passed to Leeds City Council by informing Mrs Rebecca Haworth, School Administrator.
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 certain information about our pupils to our local authority (LA) and the Department for Education (DfE).
