Privacy Notice - Data Protection Act 1998 How we use pupil information

We, at Mount Pleasant Primary School, are a data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect and hold personal information relating to our pupils and may also receive information about them from their previous school, local authority and/or the Department for Education (DfE). We use 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

This information will include their contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information[1], 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.

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). For more information on how this sharing process works, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-pupil-database-apply-for-a-data-extract
