PRIVACY NOTICE PUPILS – DATA PROTECTION ACT 1998
We, Sacred Heart High School Hammersmith are a data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect information from students and may receive information about students from their 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, and
Assess how well your school is doing.
This information includes student contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information (age 5+) and personal characteristics such as ethnic group, any special educational needs and relevant medical information. If students are enrolling for post 14 qualifications we will be provided with student unique learner numbers (ULN) by the Learning Records Service and may also obtain from them details of any learning or qualifications students have undertaken.
We will not give information about you to anyone outside the school without your consent unless the law and our rules allow us to.
We are required by law to pass some information about students to the LA and the Department for Education (DfE).

Addition Information for Secondary School Pupils
Once a student is aged 13 or over, we are required by law to pass on certain information to the provider 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 address of you and your parents (and your date of birth) and any further information relevant to the support services' role. However, until you are aged 16 or older, your parent(s) can ask that no information beyond your name, address and date of birth (and their name and address) be passed on to the youth services provider. This right transfers to you on your 16th birthday. Please inform the school if this is what you or your parents wish. For more information about young peoples’ services, please go to the Directgov Young People page at: www.direct.gov.uk/en/YoungPeople/index.htm or the LA website shown above.
