Forest Oak School

Privacy Notice - Data Protection Act 1998


We collect, use and store information about our pupils and may receive information about you from your previous school. This information helps us:

  • support our pupils’ teaching and learning;

  • follow and report on our pupils’ progress;
  • provide the right care and support for our pupils; and
  • understand how well our school is doing as a whole.

The information we keep includes contact details; assessment marks and results; attendance records; other information such as ethnic group or religion; special educational needs; and any relevant medical information.


We are required (under the Data Protection Act) to take care of all information and we take this responsibility seriously.


We will not give information about you to anyone outside the school without your consent unless the law and our rules permit it. We are required by law to pass some of your information to the Local Authority (LA), and the Department for Education (DfE).


If we have any attendance concerns we will also pass information to Commissioned Central School and Attendance Welfare Service team who support us on attendance issues.


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