Your Data Rights
In so far as is compatible with legal requirements you have a number of rights in respect of your data:
The Information Commissioner regulates data handling by organisations in the U.K. and work to uphold the data rights of citizens, their website provides more information on the rights available to you: https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/
If you consented to providing your personal information to us and you have changed your mind and you no longer want the school to hold and process your information, please let us know.
If you encounter any difficulties in withdrawing consent, please contact the School Data Protection Officer or the Headteacher.
Automated Decision Making and Profiling
The school does not carry out automated decision-making, and as such any decision taken by us which affects you will always include human intervention. We do on occasion carry out profiling and track the progress of pupils to enable us as a school to target services to those who are in need of help and support.
The Right to Complain About Data Handling
The school sets very high standards for the collection and appropriate use of personal data. We therefore take any complaints about data handling very seriously. We encourage you to bring to our attention where the use of data is unfair, misleading or inappropriate and we also welcome suggestions for improvement.
In the first instance we would ask that you try and resolve data handling issues directly with the Headteacher or any member of the senior leadership team. We are committed to handling data appropriately and are confident that we can resolve most issues informally.
You can ask for your issue to be investigated by writing to:
DPO : Mr Kim Collis, City & County of Swansea; supported by Rhodri Jones as the Interim Information Governance Officer
If you remain dissatisfied following the response to your contact with the school, if it relates to issues of data handling you can raise the issue with the Information Commissioner. It is free of charge to contact the Information Commissioner and request their assistance.
