Hospital and Outreach Education and the new General Data Protection Regulations.

Data regulations changed on 25 May 2018, and our commitment to protecting your details had not changed. We want you to know that we take privacy very seriously. We always manage your details responsibly, and take great care to keep them safe and secure.

We store and sometimes transfer your information to other agencies, other schools and other authorities, so that we can operate effectively as a pupil referral unit and be able to positively implement our duty of care for our pupils. Under data regulations we are lawfully able to do this to carry out tasks in the public interest and as part of our legal obligation.

We are being more transparent so that you know more about the personal information we hold. We have completed an information audit (located here) so you can see this information.

Further information is also included in our data protection policy and privacy notices. which can be found in our Policies section :- here  under General Data Protection Regulation Policies.

You have rights under data protection regulations, and we would like you to know what they are:

  • a right of access to a copy of the information comprised in your personal data. However we may consider applying an exemption to some information where our duties maybe potentially compromised.
  • a right to object to processing that is likely to cause or is causing damage or distress;
  • a right to prevent processing for direct marketing;
  • a right to object to decisions being taken by automated means, unless we have an overriding legitimate reason to continue;
  • a right in certain circumstances to have inaccurate personal data rectified, blocked, erased or destroyed.
  • a right to claim compensation for damages caused by a breach of the Act.

If you would like to make any requests, think your data has been misused or it is not secure, you should contact us.

Our Data Protection Controller, is James Shryane, the Headteacher.
