Consent and rights of access to the personal information of students.
The School respects and affirms the parents’ right to make decisions concerning their student-child’s education.
Hence, the School will refer any request for consent and notices in relation to personal information of a student to the student’s parents or guardian. The School will treat both consent by and notice to parents/guardian as consent on behalf of the students and notice to the student.
The School may, through the discretion of the Head of the School only, grant a student access to the personal information held by the School on that student’s request, or the Head may allow a student to give or withhold consent to the use of their personal information, independently of their parents/guardian. This would normally be done only in exceptional circumstances when the age, maturity and circumstances of the student warranted it.
If you would like further information about the way the School manages the personal information it holds, please contact the Head through the Head’s Executive Assistant.
Girton’s Privacy Officer is the Head.
