Education and training
Children and Young People, Education and Schools hold information about young people living in our area, including about their education and training history. This is to support the provision of their education up to the age of 20 (and beyond this age for those with a special educational need or disability). Under parts 1 and 2 of the Education and Skills Act 2008, education institutions and other public bodies (including the Department for Education (DfE), police, probation and health services) may pass information to us to help us to support these provisions
Youth support services
Pupils aged 13+
Once our pupils reach the age of 13, we also pass pupil information to the provider of youth support services as they have responsibilities in relation to the education or training of 13-19-year-olds under section 507B of the Education Act 1996.
This enables them to provide services as follows:
- youth support services
- careers advisers
- post-16 education and training providers (Pupils aged 16+).
The information shared is limited to the child’s name, address, and date of birth. However, where a parent or guardian provides their consent, other information relevant to the provision of youth support services will be shared. This right is transferred to the child/pupil once he/she reaches the age of 16.
For more information about services for young people, please visit our local authority website.
Department for Education
The Department for Education (DfE) collects personal data from educational settings and local authorities via various statutory data collections. We are required to share information about our children and young people with the Department for Education (DfE) for the purpose of those data collections.
All data is transferred securely and held by DfE under a combination of software and hardware controls that meet the current government security policy framework.
For more information, please see ‘How Government uses your data’ section.
