Privacy Notice – Data Protection Act 1998 (Updated July 2014)

Great Torrington Bluecoat C of E Primary School is the data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect personal information from you and may receive information about you from your previous school and the Learning Records Service. We hold this personal data to:

  • Support your learning;
  • Monitor and report on your progress;
  • Provide appropriate pastoral care, and
  • Assess how well we are doing.

Information about you that we hold includes your contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information[1] 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.

We will not give information about you to anyone without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to.

We are required by law to pass some information about you to our Local Authority (LA) and the Department for Education.  If you want to receive a copy of the information about you that we hold or share, please contact the School Administrator.

If you need more information about how the LA and DfE store and use your information, then please go to the following websites:
