Chadsgrove School is a data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 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).

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, eSchools) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Services, and we refer to these as “advertising” or “analytical” cookies. For example, the embedding of YouTube and Vimeo videos, as added by individual schools, will require “advertising” cookies to be enabled in order to successfully play them. Schools that, for example, opt to track visitor data using Google Analytics will require “analytical” cookies to be enabled in order to do so. These third party cookies are used to tailor content and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalise your experience while interacting with our Services and to otherwise improve the functionality of the Services we provide. We also enable schools to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with their use of our Services in order to allow them to track visitors to and interactions with their school website.
Our Services allows schools to embed code which may potentially contain cookies. Please note embedded content, if displayed on one of our websites, has been added by the school and not by eSchools. The embedded content added by the school may require additional cookies or tracking technologies to be enabled in order to function.
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. Be aware that cookie preferences are set on a per device basis; therefore you may need to set your preferences on each device you use.
