Privacy Notice for Parents/Carers, Guardians and Pupils

The privacy notice advises parents, carers, guardians and pupils of the school’s data protection responsibilities on the collection and processing of pupil’s personal information.

You are being provided with this notice because either you can exercise your child’s data protection rights on their behalf or for older children (usually when they reach the age of 13) they may be considered mature enough to exercise their own data protection rights.

The notice provides details about:

  • The personal information we collect on pupils
  • How we collect that personal information
  • What we do with the personal information
  • Your rights in relation to any personal information held and processed by the school

The Raleigh Learning Trust is the overall ‘Data Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us. This means that they decide the purpose for which and the manner in which any personal data relating to pupils and their families is to be processed.

The Data Protection Officer for the Raleigh Trust is Claire Beardsall. Her role is to oversee and monitor the school’s Data Protection procedures and to ensure they are compliant with GDPR.
