GDPR Parental Consents

Photography, video and voice permission

The school is part of the Greenshaw Learning Trust.  The school/trust may use photographs and videos of students for educational and promotional purposes, both within school and in school/trust publications (such as the school/trust media sites).  Please advise if you are happy for us to use your child’s photo for:

  • In school/trust publications (printed or digital) 
  • In school/trust marketing material
  • The school/trust website
  • The schools/trust social networking platforms (Facebook, Twitter)
  • Sharing with third parties for their own journalistic purposes

Biometric data

We use biometric data for our cashless dining system to speed up processing students through the tills.  It eliminates theft and is also used for students to take books out of our library.

The biometric identification system uses the finger and its image to uniquely identify each student and member of staff.  The system measures many aspects of a finger and then translates the measurements into a unique identification code which is entered into the system.  The image of the fingerprint itself is not recorded or stored.  This is not fingerprinting and the data stored cannot be used to recreate an image of the fingerprint.  When a student uses the biometric identification systems, they are identified by their identification code. This form of identification is called biometrics, which translated means measurements of human characteristics.  We will comply at all times with Data Protection Act and with the provisions of the Protection of Freedoms Act regarding the use of biometric data.

When your child leaves the school, biometric data will be securely deleted.

Assessment and data

In line with our on-going commitment to monitor your child’s learning as they progress throughout the school, we administer a number of tests on entry, the results from which are used to determine whether any further intervention is necessary to support your child’s learning needs.

I agree that the school may administer the assessment tests and share my child’s data with the appropriate bodies in accordance with the school’s Assessment and data procedures.  

Data exchange

We share information regarding your child with the Trust, relevant local authorities and organisations.

Sex education

Sex Education is shared with students during appropriate lessons.
