Privacy Notice – Data Protection Act 1998

We Hippings Methodist 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 Service.

We hold this personal data and use it to:

  •  support your teaching and learning;
  •  monitor and report on your progress;
  •  provide appropriate pastoral care,
  •  assess how well your school is doing.

This information includes your contact details, national curriculum assessment
results, attendance information (1), and personal characteristics such as your ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information.

When you are enrolled in a LCC Nursery or School you will be provided with your Unique Pupil Number by the school’s computer system and this will be used as a method of identification throughout your school career allowing the LCC and DfE to obtain details of any learning or qualifications you have undertaken.

We will not give information about you to anyone outside the school without
your consent unless the law and our rules permit it.

We are required by law to pass some of your information to the Local Authority (LA), and the Department for Education (DfE).

If you want to see a copy of the information we hold and share about you then
please contact Mrs L Perkins (School Administrator)
