Privacy Notice for Outreach Behaviour Support Schools
Under data protection law, our stakeholders have a right to be assured of our best practice when complying with the General Data Protection Regulation.
We comply with this right by providing ‘privacy notices’ (sometimes called ‘fair processing notices’) to our stakeholders where we are processing data that has been shared by them.
This privacy notice explains how we collect, store and use personal data about pupils, families and possible their employees.
We, Longford Park School, 74 Cromwell Road, Stretford Manchester M32 8QJ, are the ‘data processor’ and ‘data controller’ for the purposes of data protection law.
Our Data Protection Officer DPO is contracted to the school as part of a Service Level Agreement. You are able to contact them by writing to the school, your correspondence should be addressed to the Data Protection Officer.
The personal data we hold
Personal data relates to a natural living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession.
Personal data that we may collect, use, store and share (when appropriate) about pupils includes, but is not restricted to:
Contact details, contact preferences, date of birth, identification documents
Results of internal assessments and externally set tests
Pupil and curricular records
Characteristics, such as ethnic background, eligibility for free school meals, or special educational needs
Details of any medical conditions, including physical and mental health
Details of any support received, including care packages, plans and support providers
CCTV images captured in school
We may also hold data about pupils that we have received from other organisations, including other schools, local authorities and the Department for Education.
Why we use this data
We use this data to:
Support pupil learning
Monitor and report on pupil progress
Provide appropriate pastoral care
Protect pupil welfare
Assess the quality of our services
Administer admissions waiting lists
Carry out research
Comply with the law regarding data sharing
Our legal basis for using this data
We only collect and use pupils’ personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we process it where:
We need to comply with a legal obligation
We need it to perform an official task in the public interest
Less commonly, we may also process pupils’ personal data in situations where:
We have obtained consent to use it in a certain way
We need to protect the individual’s vital interests (or someone else’s interests)
Where we have obtained consent to use pupils’ personal data, this consent can be withdrawn at any time. We will make this clear when we ask for consent, and explain how consent can be withdrawn.
Some of the reasons listed above for collecting and using pupils’ personal data overlap, and there may be several grounds which justify our use of this data.
Collecting this information
The school is the data processor and data controller. Our stakeholders share information with us for the purpose of providing them with our Outreach Support and we process this information to provide this support. The school then becomes the Data Controller and will also compile its own data to deliver the support and intended outcomes, the school decides how the data is processed and for what purpose.
Under data protection legislation we are required to inform you that our lawful basis for processing sensitive information is in pursuit of our legitimate interests as a service providing you with behaviour outreach support.
While the majority of information we collect about pupils is mandatory, there is some information that can be provided voluntarily.
Whenever we seek to collect information from you or the families concerned, we make it clear whether providing it is mandatory or optional. If it is mandatory, we will explain the possible consequences of not complying and consent forms are provided for optional information.
How we store this data
All personal information is stored electronically and is kept while the pupil is of Primary Education age. We may also keep it beyond this in order to comply with our legal and safeguarding obligations. Our Records Management Policy sets out how long we keep information about pupils.
Our Records Management Policy and all other school policies can be found on our website, under the heading of Key Information, Policies - page - https://www.longford.trafford.sch.uk/policies/
We do not share information about pupils with other third party without consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so.
Where it is legally required, or necessary (and it complies with data protection law) we may share personal information about pupils with:
Our local authority – to meet our legal obligations to share certain information with it, such as safeguarding concerns and exclusions
The Department for Education
The pupil’s family and representatives
Educators and examining bodies

Individuals, Parents and pupils’ rights regarding personal data
Individuals have a right to make a ‘subject access request’ to gain access to the personal information that the school holds about them.
If a subject access request is received, we will respond by following our procedures and policies.
Under data protection law, individuals have certain rights regarding how their personal data is used and kept safe. When gaining consent we will inform all parents whether their consent to use of information is mandatory or voluntary.
Voluntary consent would be considered as the right to:
Object to the use of personal data if it would cause, or is causing, damage or distress
Prevent it being used to send direct marketing
Object to decisions being taken by automated means (by a computer or machine, rather than by a person)
In certain circumstances, have inaccurate personal data corrected, deleted or destroyed, or restrict processing
- Claim compensation for damages caused by a breach of the data protection regulations
