Data Protection

Data Protection governs how information about living people (such as pupils, parents, staff and volunteers) is collected and used. The UK data protection regime is set out in the Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018, along with the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).

Data protection law applies to the processing of personal data.  This means data which relates to an individual who can be identified from that information.  It does not affect all the records the school or academy trust holds because much of it will not contain personal data.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the national regulator of data protection legislation. If there is something that we, as an academy trust, are doing that is not quite as it should be, a complaint can be made to the ICO. The ICO website is a key place to find further information on data protection: https://ico.org.uk/

Our school is part of Peterborough Diocese Education Trust (PDET) and therefore PDET is the Data Controller and responsible for compliance under UK GDPR.

PDET has audited its schools / academies and is responsible for creating and maintaining a Record of Processing Activities (RPA).

The RPA is a list of the main types of personal data that the Trust has (and this, therefore, includes all the data schools in the Trust have), stating key details about the data, such as:

  • Why we have it;
  • What it is used for;
  • Where it is stored;
  • Who it is shared with (if it is); and
  • How long we keep it for.

Privacy Notices

Privacy Notices are what we use to explain what personal data we collect and what we do with it, such as if we share it with anyone else. The Trust has a privacy notice for the following:

  • Privacy Notice for pupils
  • Privacy Notice for parents
  • Privacy Notice for staff
  • Privacy Notice for volunteers

 Data Protection Officer (DPO)

UK GDPR makes it a requirement for all public authorities (including schools) and large organisations to have a designated DPO.  PDET’s DPO can be contacted at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Rights of individuals

 The UK GDPR provides the following rights for individuals:

  • Right to be informed;
  • Right of access (to receive copies of their personal data known as Subject Access Request);
  • Right to rectification (correcting data if inaccurate);
  • Right to erasure (to request that data is deleted);
  • Right to restrict processing (to request you do not use their data in a certain way);
  • Right to data portability;
  • Right to object;
  • Right to have explained if there will be any automated decision-making, including profiling, based on the data and that they have the right to meaningful information about the logic behind this.

 To exercise any of these rights, please contact the school.


PDET has prepared the following policies which have been adopted by the school:

  • Data Protection and Information Rights Policy
  • Freedom of Information Policy and Publication Scheme
  • Records Retention and Deletion Policy


Key Stage 2 Results & School Performance Tables

An overview of our results can be found at the Department of Education website (follow the link on the side panel). Also, under Key Policies and Files, you will be able to download our most recent school published reports which show summaries of the National Curriculum assessment results of pupils in KS1 and KS2. These documents are published as soon as practically possible following the previous academic year end. For the academic year 2019-2020 there will be no published results due to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have achieved archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.

Our School Performance Table

School Curriculum

The School operates a Creative Curriculum, which incorporates all the knowledge, skills and objectives of the National Curriculum, while also offering a carefully planned, thematic approach to teaching and learning. For example, recent work covered by ‘In Space, You Can’t Hear Me Scream’ included a special focus on topics including: the Solar System, space travel, the history of space, gravity and a trip to The Science Museum in London. 

During the Covid-19 pandemic it has been necessary to implement remote learning for most pupils. Please see our Remote Learning Policy information regarding this on our Policies & Documentspage.

Pupil Behaviour

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium money is provided through the Local Authority to support pupils from low income families who are eligible for Free School Meals and other target groups including Looked After Children and pupils of Forces employees.

Each year this funding is used to provide additional intervention programmes for children; this is delivered through teaching small groups, Intervention sessions with Class Teachers and Teaching Assistant support and help towards the funding of Educational Trips, Instrumental Lessons in school and After School Clubs. Children's progress is tracked to ensure that at least satisfactory progress is made for our target children, as we do for all children in our school.

The full funding allocation and expenditure can be seen in the Pupil Premiumm Action Plan on our Policies & Documentspage.

Sports Premium

PE and Sport Premium funding received by the school has enabled the children, through the Kettering Small Schools Sports Partnership to participate in numerous tournaments, including Athletics, Football, Tag Rugby, Gymnastics, Tennis, Tri-Golf, Netball. 

Key Themes and Priorities:

• To provide high quality teaching and learning of PE and School Sport based on the fundamentals of movement.
• To ensure the school has a developmental PE curriculum that is progressive and fully underpinned by movement fundamentals.
• To use PE and School Sport as a vehicle to improve behaviour and engagement across school
• To increase the opportunities for children to develop leadership skills.
• To raise the profile of PE and School Sport.

Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (Inclusion)


The school aims to provide equal opportunities for all. There is access for wheelchair users from both the top of school to the lower level and from the playground to the lower part of school. A disabled toilet is available at the top of school.

Special Educational Needs

Whatever the ability of each pupil, the school seeks to provide a suitable teaching programme. Nationally, one fifth of all children may need special educational support at some point in their school career. Children with learning, social, emotional or behavioural problems are sympathetically helped by the staff in partnership with parents. In certain cases it may be felt that outside professional help is needed, which would be sought only with parents’ prior permission and co-operation.

A child who experiences SEN now has their progress carefully monitored by each Class Teacher and the school SEN co-ordinator. The Governor who is responsible for SEN monitors the school policy and its implementation.

Gifted and Talented

The School recognises and supports the needs of children identified as ‘Gifted and Talented’. The DCSF classification is "gifted and talented pupils are those pupils who achieve or have the ability to achieve at a level significantly in advance of their year group within their school."
