The Local Authority (LA) uses information about children for
whom it provides services, to enable it to carry out specific
functions for which it is responsible, such as the assessment of
any special educational needs the child may have. It also uses the
information to derive statistics to inform decisions on (for
example) the funding of schools, and to assess the performance of
schools and set targets for them. The statistics are used in such a
way that individual children cannot be identified from them.
The Local Authority will use information about its school
workforce for research and statistical purposes, and to evaluate
and develop education policy and strategies. The statistics
are used in such a way that individual staff cannot be indentified
from them. The LA may also use it to support and monitor schools
regarding sickness and recruitment of staff.
