Data Collection

28th September 2015

Dear Parents / Carers,


St Mary Magdalene Catholic 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 you with pastoral care and to assess how well your school is doing. 

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

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



If you want to see a copy of the information we hold and may share about you, then please contact the school office.
