Data Protection

Fourfields, as a school, holds information on each pupil in order to provide a rounded edcuation and a safe environment for each child.  It is therefore bound to follow the Data Protection Act 1998.  This means, amongst other things, that the data held about pupils must only be used for specific purposes allowed by law.

The school asks all parents, carers and visitors to our school to ask permission to take photos and video and to agree such files are used for personal use only and are not shared with social media sights or other agencies. The school will only publish images on this website if parental permission has been provided.

Separate from the Data Protection Act, the Department for Education regulations provide a pupil's parents (regardless of the age of the pupil) with the right to view, or to have a copy of, their child's educational record at the school.  If you wish to exercise this right you should write to the governing body.

The Freedom of Information Act requires publicly funded bodies, including schools, to be clear about the information they publish. We have produced a publication scheme setting out all the information we publish on a regular basis and where to find it.  Please ask at the school office to see a copy of the scheme.
