 How do we store this information?

Information about you is stored in a number ways by your teachers, the Headteacher and the school office.  We make sure that all of the information we have about you is kept private so that only your teachers and our office staff can see and use that information when they need to.  Some of the information is kept on paper in our files, locked filing cabinets and cupboards.  Some of the information is kept on our computers and needs a password for someone to access it.  This makes sure that it is private and that nobody else in or outside of the school can access it.

Your Rights

You and your parents have a right to make sure that the information that we keep about you is accurate and correct and is not shared with anyone who does not need to see it.  If your parents are concerned about this, they can contact the school to talk about it.  We have someone called a Data Protection Officer who helps us to make sure that the information we have is kept securely and that we can sort out quickly anything might go wrong, such as if one of teachers’s computers is lost or we share information about you with someone when we should not have done.
