Dear Parents,

Privacy Notice - Data Protection Act 1998

We, at Oakington Manor Primary, are the Data Controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect information from you and may receive information about you from your child’s previous school and the Learning Records Service. We hold this personal data and use it to:

  • Support children’s teaching and learning;
  • Monitor and report on their progress;
  • Provide appropriate pastoral care, and
  • Assess how well the school is doing.

This information includes your contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information and personal characteristics such as your ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information.

We are required by law to pass some of your information to the Local Authority and the Department for Education (DfE).

If you want to see a copy of the information we hold and share  then please contact Ms. Singh, Head of School, to organise an appointment.
