At Trelewis Primary School we take Data Protection very seriously and do the utmost to ensure all information held on your child is always safe and secure.
When your child starts at Trelewis Primary school you are asked to provide information about them. Their previous school (if applicable) may also send their previous records to the new school. This information is kept by the school, usually on the school’s computerised administration system, and then used for a variety of purposes related to the running of the school and provision of your child’s education.
Personal data collected and held in this way is treated confidentially and stored securely.
Your child has certain rights relating to this information; the Data Protection Act (1998) sets out those rights and protects individuals from misuse of the information held. In certain circumstances you, as parent/guardian, may have a right to ask for access to and a copy of personal data held about a pupil in your legal care, this is not an automatic right and each case will be considered on its own merits.
Details of the type of data held, who it is shared with and what it is used for is published by the school in its Data Protection Policy and is available on the website.
