Personal Data and The Lighthouse Club

Data Protection
Schools are required to inform pupils and their families about how their personal data may be collected and used. We comply with this right by providing ‘privacy notices’ (sometimes called ‘fair processing notices’) to individuals where we are processing their personal data. You will already have received such a notice. If you have not, please contact the School Office.

The following paragraphs explain how we collect, store and use personal data about pupils and their families.

Who processes your information?

We, Mount Primary School, Mount Pleasant Road, Wallasey, CH45 5HU, are the ‘data controller’ for the purposes of data protection law.

Collecting this information
We may also hold data about pupils that we have received from other organisations, including other schools, local authorities and the Department for Education.
