Under data protection law, individuals have a right to be informed about how the Trust and its Schools use any personal data about its students. We, the Alumnis Multi Academy Trust, comply with this right by providing Privacy Notices to parents/carers and students, as appropriate, where we are processing their personal data.
The Alumnis Multi-Academy Trust is the Data Controller for the purposes of data protection law and therefore will determine the purposes for which personal data is processed (the ‘why’ and the ‘how’). Your School and authorised 3rd parties, e.g.School Money, process and ‘use’ data on behalf of the Trust and are therefore Data Processors.
We collect and use personal data about the pupils who attend our schools, in order to provide an outstanding education. This personal data includes identifiers such as name, address and contact details of parents/carers, characteristics such as ethnic group, nationality and language, attendance information, test results, medical conditions, and special educational needs information.
This data is used for a variety of reasons, including:
Support student learning.
Protect student welfare.
Monitor and report on student progress.
Contact students and parent/carers when we need to.
Provide appropriate pastoral care.
Assess the quality of the services we provide.
Administer admissions waiting lists.
The Trust and its Schools will ensure that all personal data is processed fairly and lawfully, is accurate, is kept secure and is retained for no longer than is necessary. We do not share personal information about our students with any third party without consent, unless the law and our policies allow us to do so. For example we are required to pass on some data to the Department of Education (DfE).
