I am committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected and I strictly adhere to the provisions of the Data Protection Act 2018, any national implementing laws, regulations and secondary legislation as amended or updated from time to time in the UK, and any successor legislation to GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 (Data Protection Legislation).
When a client contacts me to provide an assessment of SpLD, I collect a range of information to enable me to fulfil that service provision. This includes:
I collect this information to plan and provide the assessment that the client has requested.
This information is not shared with any other individual or organisation, without the client’s express, written consent. Both paper and electronic records are kept secure on the premises at Blossomsend Cottage, Blossom Lane, Theale. Reading. RG7 5BE.
The client is entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that I hold. Please email your request to [email protected]
Please Note: Requests from clients to delete data relating to an individual will be considered on a case by case basis but I may be unable to remove all assessment records or support notes for legal reasons.
When a school contacts me to provide assessment for access arrangements, I collect a range of information on examination candidates from the school SENCO, to enable me to fulfil that service provision. For each candidate, this comprises Section 1 of JCQ (The Joint Council for Qualifications) Form 8, which may include any of the following information:
I collect this information electronically, to plan and provide the assessments for access arrangements that the SENCO has requested. When I have assessed a candidate, the record of that assessment is made electronically, on Section 2 of of JCQ Form 8 and returned to the SENCO. Form 8 is then kept securely stored by the school, along with the additional evidence that the school has collected of a candidate's 'normal way of working'. When this evidence requirement is complete, the school may then make a secure online application for an award of access arrangements in examinations, to JCQ or the awarding bodies; whose decision is final.
14 days after my visit to a school, all information regarding test candidates is either returned to the school to be kept securely, or safely destroyed. After 14 days, no information on a school or a school's examination candidates is ever stored or shared by me, except by express, written direction from the school SENCO or Head of Centre; or as required by law.
This data policy was created on 25th May, 2018 and is annually reviewed on 6th April each year.
