Data Protection Policy

PRIVACY NOTICE for pupils in schools, alternative provision and pupil referral units


 Privacy Notice - Data Protection Act 1998


We, Lakenham Primary School, are 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 Servicei. 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, and
  • assess how well the school as a whole is doing.
  • To support your transition to post 16 education/training


This data includes your contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance informationii, characteristics such as ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information. If you are enrolling for post 14 qualifications we will be provided with your unique learner number (ULN) by the Learning Records Service and may also obtain from them details of any learning or qualifications you have undertaken.

 This data may 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. The presumption is that by the age of 12 a child has sufficient maturity to understand their rights and to make an access request themselves if they wish. A parent would normally be expected to make a request on a child’s behalf if the child is younger.

 If you wish to access your personal data, or that of your child, then please contact the school office on 01603 877780.

 We encourage you to read the supplementary information on the websites listed below, which will explain the options available to you to opt out of some of the post 16 data, where there is no mandatory requirement for this data to be collected or shared.

 If you require more information about how the LA and/or DfE store and use this data please go to the following websites:
