At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, we aim to provide a positive, aspirational
learning environment to support all our pupils in improving their life chances. In
order to achieve this we need to work with parents, pupils, academy councillors,
trustees, the local authority, government departments and carefully selected
Our school aims to ensure that all personal data received about pupils is collected,
stored and processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018. As we take privacy seriously, personal data
is only used in conjunction with providing the best possible care and education for
your child, to support teaching and learning, monitor and report on your child’s
progress and to provide appropriate pastoral care.
Schools must now provide parents with the opportunity to opt-in or out of data
sharing. We will never release personal information to anyone outside of the school without
your consent, unless the law permits it.
