Chadsgrove School is a data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998. We collect information from pupils and their parents, and may receive information about pupils from their previous school and the Learning Records Service.

We hold this personal data and use it to:

• Support teaching and learning;

• Monitor and report on progress;

• Provide appropriate pastoral care, and

• Assess how well the school is doing.

This information includes pupil contact details, assessment results, attendance information and personal characteristics such as ethnic group, any special educational needs and relevant medical information.

Once pupils are aged 13 or over, we are required by law to pass on certain information to providers of youth support services in the pupils area. This is the local authority support service for young people aged 13 to 19 in England. We must provide both pupil’s and their parent’s/s’ name(s) and address and any further information relevant to the support services’ role.

However, if pupils are over 16, they (or their parent(s)) can ask that no information beyond names, address and date of birth be passed to the support service. This right transfers to pupils on their 16th birthday. Please inform Jacqueline Pitt (School Business Manager) if you wish to opt-out of this arrangement.

We will not give information about pupils to anyone outside the school without their consent unless the law and our policies allow us to.

We are required by law to pass some information about pupils to the Local Authority and the Department for Education (DfE). If you want to see a copy of the information about you that we hold and/or share, please contact Jacqueline Pitt (School Business Manager).

If you require more information about how Worcestershire County Council or the Department for Education store and use your information, then please go to the following websites: 

If you are unable to access these websites,we can send you a copy of this information.
