What about really sensitive data?
We know that Customers will be using Pupil Progress to enhance their understanding, support and education of learners. Where this information includes very specific groups, this may include areas that are sensitive information (like racial or ethnic origin, or health / Special Educational Needs or Disabilities data). This may also include other information that the School wishes to treat as sensitive data (like Looked-After Child status, Pupil Premium status, Free School Meals eligibility, or other funded or other special groups status). Where sensitive information is shared with us, then it will be allowed based on how the Customer has agreed to it. We will process this information on the understanding that the Customer has a lawful basis for authorising us to process it. This may include explicit consent or substantial public interest, but this will likely need to be shared through the Customer’s own privacy notice. We will always provide routes for any sensitive data to be excluded from Pupil Progress. If the school is using a data interchange tool such as Groupcall Xporter, this is normally through configuring data sharing through your data interface tool.
What about students’ data?
Pupil Progress is designed to provide organisations with information on students to help monitor and identify the progress of learners. This means that both staff and student Personal Data will be used. We know this and take additional care as a result. Additionally, the option to anonymise and aggregate School data takes place when the Customer asks us to include this data for work with another partner around comparisons between School cohorts.
