Privacy Policy

Privacy Notice – Data Protection Act 1998

The Chase School is a 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;
  • Support a young person in their transition to a Post-16 Provider of Education or Training;
  • Assess how well your school is doing;

 

This information includes your contact details (including the name and address of your parents/carers), national curriculum assessment results, attendance information and personal characteristics such as your ethnic group, any special educational needs you may have and relevant medical information. If you are enrolling for Post-14 qualifications the Learning Records Service will give us your unique learner number (ULN) and may also give us details about your learning or qualifications.

 

Once you are aged 13 or over, we are required by law to pass on certain information to providers of youth support services in your area. This is the Local Authority support service for young people aged 13 to 19 in England. We must provide the names and addresses of you and your parent(s)/guardian(s), and any further information relevant to the support services role. We may also share certain personal data relating to children aged 16 and over with post-16 education and training providers in order to secure appropriate services for them.

 

Your parent(s)/guardian(s) can ask that no information beyond names, addresses and your date of birth be passed to the support service. This right transfers to you on your 16th birthday. Please tell the Headteacher’s PA at The Chase if you wish to opt out of this arrangement. For more information about young people’s services, please go to the National Careers Service page at:
https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk/aboutus/Pages/default.aspx

 

We will not give information about you to anyone outside the school without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to.
We are required by law to pass some information about you to the Department for Education (DfE) and, in turn, this will be available for the use(s) of the Local Authority.

 

If you want to see a copy of the information we hold and share about you then please contact the Headteacher’s PA, The Chase, Geraldine Road, Malvern, Worcs WR14 3NZ, telephone 01684 891961, email office@chase.worcs.sch.uk
