The Governing Body of Felpham Community College adopted the Data Protection Policy for all staff and students on 08 July 2020.
Introduction This Policy sets out the manner in which personal data of staff, students and other individuals is processed fairly and lawfully.
The School collects and uses personal information about staff, students, parents or carers and other individuals who come into contact with the School. This information is gathered in order to enable it to provide education and other associated functions. In addition, there may be a legal requirement to collect and use information to ensure that the School complies with its statutory obligations.
The School is a data controller and must therefore comply with the Data Protection Principles in the processing of personal data, including the way in which the data is obtained, stored, used, disclosed and destroyed. The School must be able to demonstrate compliance. Failure to comply with the Principles exposes the School and staff to civil and criminal claims and possible financial penalties.
The School’s registration number is Z5370849. This registration is renewed annually and updated as and when necessary.
