COLLECTING DATA FOR TEST AND TRACE
In the current pandemic, we may need to store your data for test and trace purposes. This is in order for the school to engage with the test and trace process, make decisions on safety within the school and whether individuals are required to self-isolate or carry out a test. To do this we will be recording your name, contact number and date and time of arrival as well as time of departure.
To complement the above we may also ask for data that has not previously supplied. This will allow us to assess an individual’s ability to attend/return to school and what measures may need to be put in place to allow for a safe return. We, additionally, may need to collect data about individuals that you reside with in order to factor in appropriate considerations for their wellbeing.
All data collected by the school will be processed in accordance with our retention, destruction, data protection and data security policies. All data collected for test and trace purposes will be retained for 21 days in accordance with government guidelines.
The legal bases for using your data in these circumstances will be for the reasons of substantial public interest and in the interests of public health. Dependant on circumstances the basis may be to assess the working capacity of an employee or to protect the vital interests of yourself or another person. We may need to share select data with others. This can be with the NHS and emergency services, public health, public authorities as well as other stakeholders. This will only be done where it is necessary and proportionate for us to do so.
