When a child starts at a new school the parents will be asked to provide information about them on an admission form. The admission form includes a Privacy Notice which tells you why we need to collect the child’s information and what we are going to use it for. This Privacy Notice also explains the purpose of processing the child’s personal information, how long it will be kept for and who it will be shared with.
If you have any questions or concerns about the way you or your child’s personal information is being used you can contact the Council’s Data Protection Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All personal data in relation to pupils or their families which is held by the school or the Education Authority will be handled in accordance with:
- The Data Protection Act 2018;
- The UK GDPR;
- The Human Rights Act 1998;
- The common law duty of confidentiality;
- The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002;
- The Pupils’ Educational Records (Scotland) Regulations 2003;
