Data Protection


Data Protection Act 1998: How we use pupil information

General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 

Who do we share pupils information with?

We routinely share pupil information with:

  • Schools or colleges that the pupils attend after leaving us
  • Our local authority and their commissioned providers of local authority services
  • The Department of Education

Storing pupil Information

At St Raphael’s we keep information about your child on our computer systems and also sometimes on paper.

We hold your child’s education records securely until your child reaches the age of 25, after which they are safely destroyed.

There are strict controls on who can see your information.  We will not share data if you have advised us that you do not want it shared, unless it is the only way we can make sure you stay safe and healthy or we are legally required to do so.
