We need to hold personal information about our children, staff and trainees on our computer system and in paper records to help us meet different education-related requirements. Our Headteacher is responsible for their accuracy and safe-keeping.
School staff have access to confidential records to enable them to do their jobs. From time to time information may be shared with others involved in teaching or training, if it is necessary. Anyone with access to confidential records is properly trained in confidentiality issues and is governed by a legal duty to keep their details secure, accurate and up to date.
All confidential information is held securely and appropriate safeguards are in place to prevent accidental loss.
In some circumstances we may be required by law to release confidential details to statutory or other official bodies, for example if a court order is presented, or in the case of public educational issues. In other circumstances those affected may be required to give written consent before information is released – such as the educational reports for insurance, solicitors etc.
To ensure complete privacy, we will not disclose information over the telephone or fax unless we are sure that we are talking to an authorised person. Information will not be disclosed to family and friends unless we have prior written consent and we do not leave messages with others.
