Subject access requests
Under the Data Protection Act 1998, all stakeholders have a right to request access to information the school holds about them. This is known as a subject access request.
Subject access requests must be submitted in writing, either by letter, email or fax. Requests should include:
- The subject’s name
- A correspondence address
- A contact number and email address
- Details about the information requested
Alternatively, a request can be made verbally in person or over the phone. If over the phone, verification of identity will still be required.
The school will not reveal the following information in response to subject access requests:
- Information that might cause serious harm to the physical or mental health of the pupil or
- Information that would reveal that the child is at risk of abuse, where disclosure of that
information would not be in the child’s best interests

Subject access requests for all or part of the pupil’s educational record will be provided within 15 school days. The school may need to make a charge in connection with the cost of delivering said papers.
If a subject access request does not relate to the educational record, we will respond within 30 calendar days.
If you are unable to make this request in writing, please call the school on 01263 820520 and ask to speak to the Business Manager.
