Biometric information is
information about someone’s physical or behavioural characteristics that can be
used to identify them. There are many possible biometrics, including for
example, a digital photograph or fingerprint. As part of our identity management systems,
we currently record a biometric measurement taken from a finger, but not a
fingerprint image. The information is stored in a highly secure database which is
only used by the school to confirm who is using a range of services. In future we may look to use other biometric services if required.
The system we use gives us a secure database
which holds biometric data. This can be used for a variety of services, meaning we store the least amount of data possible - it also helps to ensure that we don't have a loss of data. The data that is held cannot be used by any other agency for
any other purpose. The school will not use the biometric information for any
purpose other than that
stated above and will
store the biometric information collected securely in compliance with the Data
Protection Act 1998. The school will not share this information with anyone
else and will not
unlawfully disclose it to any other person.
Current Legislation - The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012
This legislation requires schools to:
- Inform parents
about the use of the biometric systems in the school and explain what
applications use biometrics.
- Receive written
permission from one parent if the school is to continue processing
biometrics for their child.
- Allow children
to choose an alternative way of being identified if they wish.
- Children under
18 who do not have permission will not be able to use
existing or new biometrics when using services in the school.
If you do not wish your child to use the biometric system or
your child chooses to use an alternative form of identification, such as an
Identity Card, we will provide reasonable alternative arrangements that allow
them to access current and future services. Please note that when he/she leaves the school, or if for
some other reason he/she ceases to use the biometric system, his/her biometric
data will be permanently deleted.
