 Privacy Notice Information in Schools

Pupils in Schools, Alternative Provision and Short Stay Schools and children in Early Years Settings

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.

The statistics are used in such a way that individual pupils cannot be identified from them.

PCTs may also provide individual schools and LAs with aggregate information on pupils’ height and weight.
