School staff have access to your child’s records to enable them to do their jobs. From time to time information may be shared with others involved in your child’s care, if it is necessary. Anyone with access to your child’s records is properly trained in safeguarding and ​confidentiality issues and is governed by a legal duty to keep their details secure, accurate and up to date. All information about your child is held securely and appropriate safeguards are in place to prevent accidental loss. In some circumstances we may be required by law to release your child’s details to statutory or other official bodies​. ​In other circumstances you may be required to give written consent before information is released​.

We are committed to ensuring we do the right thing for our families, pupils, staff and the third parties we work with​. ​
