Storage of Information on Computers
Basic information about pupils is held on the computer to assist with the efficient
organisation of the school and the children’s educational needs. Security measures are taken
to ensure that the information is kept confidential and is only available to authorised staff. It
may be used for statistical purposes but this will not enable any individual to be identified.
The school has registered with the Data Protection Registrar details of persons to whom they
may wish to disclose information. By law, under the provisions of the Data Protection Act
1984, information may only be disclosed to other persons in accordance with this
registration. The school is registered to disclose personal information to:
Family, relatives, guardians/trustees
Past, current or prospective employers
Legal representatives, doctors, dentists, other health advisors
Department for Education, Department of Social Security
Local Education Authority and Social Services
It is the policy of the Governors that such information is confidential and that, even
where a need to disclose information has been registered, it will only be divulged
in exceptional circumstances and will be kept to the minimum necessary to
achieve the purpose. The policy is, of course, subject to any law which
imposes a duty of disclosure on the Governors and complies with the
Freedom of Information Act.
If you are concerned about any aspect of personal information held
on the computer, please contact the Headteacher in the first
instance or write to the Information Governance Manager,
Derby City Council, The Council House, Corporation Street,
Derby, DE1 2FS.

that are available for parents to view, if they wish. These
documents include L. A. and Governors’ statements,
Ofsted reports, policies on discipline, special needs
