Schools privacy notice

Ealing Council uses information about children for whom it provides services, to enable it to carry out specific functions for which it is responsible, such as the assessment of any special educational needs the child may have. It also uses the information to derive statistics to inform decisions on for example the funding of schools, and to assess the performance of schools and set targets for them. The statistics are used in such a way that individual children cannot be identified from them.

If you have any queries about the privacy notice please contact:

The council uses information about pupils for research and statistical purposes, to monitor the performance of local health services and to evaluate and develop them. The statistics are used in such a way that individual pupils cannot be identified from them. Information on the height and weight of individual pupils may however be provided to the child and its parents and this will require the council to maintain details of pupils’ names for this purpose for a period designated by the Department of Health following the weighing and measuring process. The council may also provide individual schools with aggregate information on pupils’ height and weight.

Further information can be obtained from:

Director of Public Health, 3rd Floor NE, Perceval House, 14-16 Uxbridge Road, Ealing W5 2HL

Connexions services
