Oakwood Primary Academy
Oakwood Primary Academy 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 you from your previous school.
We hold and use your information to support your teaching and learning, monitor and report on how well you are doing, provide you with pastoral care and to assess how well your school is doing.
The information we hold includes your 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 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). It is also sometimes necessary to share information with the School Nurses team.
