How We Use Your Personal Information
The information Hailsham Community College (Academy Trust) collects from you during Year 10 and Year 11 may be shared with other organisations in order to provide you career and other guidance and for administrative, statistical and research purposes relating to education and training.
We will not give information about you to anyone outside the school without your consent unless the law allows us to.
INFORMATION WE HAVE TO PASS ON BY LAW
We are required by law to pass some of your information to East Sussex County Council (ESCC) as part of the Intended Destination, September Guarantee and Annual Activity processes.
ESCC has legal obligations under the Education and Skills Act 2008 and the Apprenticeship, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 to assist, encourage and enable young people aged 13-19 (and young adults with learning difficulties or disabilities up to the age of 25) to participate in education or training. ESCC may pass on the information we share with them to the Department of Education.
We share the following information about you:
- What you are intending to do after Year 11 in terms of education, training or employment (your Intended Destination).
- Which post-16 provider made you an offer of a place on a course at the end of Year 11 and whether you took up the offer and started a course in Year 12 (referred to as the September Guarantee), and
- What your destination is after you leave Year 11 if we are aware of this (as part of the Annual Activity Survey)
