PRIVACY NOTICE for children in Early Years Settings

For children under 12, their parents will act on their behalf.

Privacy Notice – Data Protection Act 1998

We, York Montessori Nurtury Ltd, are the Data Controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. Our data protection notification is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) – reference (insert ICO registration reference). We collect information from you and may receive information about your child from a previous setting. We hold this data and use it to:

• Support your child’s teaching and learning;

• Monitor and report on your child’s progress;

• Provide appropriate pastoral care, and

• Assess our own performance.

This information includes your contact details, attendance information, early years foundation stage learning journey/profile and personal characteristics such as ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information.

We will not give information about your child to anyone outside the setting without your consent unless the law allow us to, for example for the prevention or detection of crime.

We will keep your information secure and will never share it except if required to do so by law, or on the request of our local authority and/or health trust, and only where they have legitimate reasons for gathering the data.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Notice or if you want to see a copy of the information we hold and share about you or your child then please contact us in the following ways:-

We are required by law to pass some of your information to the Local Authority and the Department for Education (DfE) for the purposes set out above. The DfE may share individual level personal data that we supply to them, with third parties. This will only take place where legislation allows it to do so and it is in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

For children under 16, a parent or guardian can ask that no information other than their child’s name, address and date of birth (or their own name and address) be passed to a local authority. This right transfers to the child on their 16th birthday. A parent/guardian will need to inform the Nursery Manager if this is what they wish.
