We, Crispin School, are the Data Controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect information from you and may receive information about you from your previous School/Academy and the Learning Records Service. We hold this personal data and use it to:

This information includes your contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information, and personal characteristics such as your ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information.  If you are enrolling for post 14 qualifications we will be provided with your unique learner number by the Learning Records Service and may also obtain from them details of any learning or qualifications you have undertaken.

WE WILL NOT GIVE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU TO ANYONE OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT UNLESS THE LAW AND OUR RULES ALLOW US TO.

We are required by law to pass some of your information to the Local Authority and the Department for Education (DfE).  If you want to see a copy of the information we hold and share about you then please contact the office at Crispin School.

 In addition for Secondary School/Academies

Careers South West Services - Once your child/ren are aged 13 or over we are required to pass on certain information to the Careers South West services who are the government's support service for all young people aged 13 to 19 in England.  We must provide child/ren’s and their parent(s) name and address, and any further information relevant to the Careers South West services’ role.  However, children (if they are over 16) or their parents can ask that no information beyond name and address be passed to Careers South West.

Please inform the office at Crispin School if you wish to opt-out of this arrangement. For more information about Careers South West please go to the Careers South West website (see above).

In addition Crispin School has employed SISRA to support our teaching and learning:

SISRA Limited: The school sends information about your child to a third party organisation called SISRA Limited for the provision of software products delivered over the internet. The information required by SISRA Limited includes first name, surname, gender, ethnicity, SEN code and other factors such as "Free School Meals", "Gifted & Talented" and "Children in Care". SISRA's services are valuable in helping our school to monitor and improve the quality of education we provide by allowing them to analyse student, class and subject performance in great depth.
