Privacy Statement

Data Protection Act 2018

 

Hillview Nursery School is the Data Controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act.  We collect information from you and may receive information about you from your previous school and the Learning Records Service[i].  We hold this personal data and use it to:

 

  • support its pupils teaching and learning

  • monitor and report on their progress

  • provide appropriate pastoral care

  • assess how well the school is doing as a whole

  • support your transition to school

 

This data could include your contact details, assessment results, attendance information[ii], characteristics such as ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information. 

 

This data will only be used or passed on for specific purposes as allowed by law.  From time to time the school is required to pass on some of this data to local authorities, the Department for Education (DfE), and to agencies that are prescribed by law.  All these are data controllers in respect of the data they receive and are subject to the same legal constraints in how they deal with the data.

 

Pupils, as data subjects, have certain rights under the Data Protection Act, including a general right to be given access to personal data held about them by any data controller.  A parent would normally be expected to make a request on a child’s behalf if the child is younger than 12 years of age.

 

If you wish to access the personal data of your child, then please contact Catherine O'Connor at Catherine.O'Connor@harrow.gov.uk
