Data Protection


Data Protection Act 1998: How we use your information (for more information see the Data Protection Policy).


We process personal information relating to our pupils and may receive information about them from their previous school, local authority, 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 includes their contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information, any exclusion 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.


A parent or guardian can ask that no information apart from their child's name, address and date of birth be passed to KCC by informing School's Senior Administrator.  This right is transferred to the child once he or she reaches the age of 16.  For more information, please visit the local authority website (see link below).


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).


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

If you would like to receive a copy of the information about you that we hold, please contact:
