Privacy Notice

St Paul’s Church of England Primary School processes personal information about its pupils and is a ‘data controller’ for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998. We collect information from you and may receive information about your child from their previous school.

We hold and use your child’s information to support their teaching and learning, monitor and report on their progress, provide them with pastoral care and to assess how well the school is doing.

The information we hold includes you and your child’s contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information[1], ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information. 

We will not give information about you to anyone outside the school without your permission unless the law and our policies permit it. We are required by law to pass some of your information to DCAT, East Sussex County Council and to the Department for Education (DfE).
