We, St Clement's High 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 its pupils teaching and learning;
- monitor and report on their progress;
- provide appropriate pastoral care, and
- assess how well the school as a whole is doing.
This data includes your contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information, characteristics such as ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information. If you are enrolling for post 14 qualifications we will be provided with your unique learner number by the Learning Records Service and may also obtain from them details of any learning or qualifications you have undertaken.
This data may only be used or passed on for specific purposes as allowed by law. From time to time the school is required to pass on some of this data to local authorities, the Department for Education (DfE), and to agencies that are prescribed by law, such as the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency (QCDA), Ofsted, the Department of Health (DH), Primary Care Trusts (PCT), The Learning Records Service, or any successor bodies. All these are data controllers in respect of the data they receive, and are subject to the same legal constraints in how they deal with the data.
