Leas Park Junior School Privacy Notice

Leas Park Junior School respects you and your child’s privacy when you use the organisation’s services and is committed complying with privacy legislation.


Online Learning and Live Lessons 

During the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, we have to ensure that pupils are able to access a variety of online learning including ‘live lessons’ which will include a mixture of teaching and instruction.  These lessons will be hosted via online video platforms such as Microsoft Teams. When accessing these platforms, pupils and / or parents will need to share some basic personal information in order to access the platform (i.e. name and agreed email address).   You can find details of the information required by individual video platforms and their security measures by viewing their privacy notices. Microsoft Teams:  https://microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/security 

If you / your child take part in online live lessons, aspects of your / your child’s personal data (i.e. name / email address) will be shared with third parties such as the above video platforms, and potentially evidenced by other pupils accessing the same live online lesson. These systems relate to our public task to provide pupils with an education. 

The information below is what is referred to as a ‘Privacy Notice’ which explain how the Organisation uses and protects your personal information.

Leas Park Junior School has a Data Protection Officer whose role it is to ensure that any personal information processed by the Organisation is processed fairly and lawfully (respecting your rights and ensuring we follow the law).
