Privacy Notice

Addey and Stanhope School  is  the data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect personal and/or sensitive information from you and may receive and hold information from your previous school and the Learning Service.

We hold this data and use it to:

  • Support your teaching and learning
  • Monitor and report on your progress at school
  • Provide appropriate pastoral care
  • Monitor how well the school is doing
  • To contact your parent/guardian/next of kin in case of an emergency

This information includes (but is not limited to) your contact details, assessment results, attendance information and personal characteristics such as your ethnic group, any special educational needs and relevant medical information. If you are enrolling for post 14 qualifications we will be provided with your unique learner number (ULN) by the Learning Records Service and may also obtain from them details of any learning or qualifications you have undertaken.

We will not give information about you or your family to anyone outside the school without your consent unless the law and/or our policies allow us to.

We are required by law to pass some information about you to our Local Authority (LA) and the Department for Education.

Once you are aged 13 or over, we are required by law to pass on certain information to providers of youth support services in your area. This is the local authority support service for young people aged 13 to 19 in England. We must provide the names and addresses of you and your parent(s), and any further information relevant to the support services’ role. However, if you are over 16, you (or your parent(s)) can ask that no information beyond names, addresses and your date of birth be passed to the support service.

This right transfers to you on your 16th birthday. Please tell the school office if you wish to opt out of this arrangement.
