Pupils, as data subjects, have certain rights under the Data Protection Act, including a general right to be given access to personal data held about them by any data controller. The presumption is that by the age of 12 a child has sufficient maturity to understand their rights and to make an access request themselves if they wish. A parent would normally be expected to make a request on a child’s behalf if the child is younger.

If you wish to access your personal data, or that of your child, then please contact the relevant organisation in writing.

Details of these organisations can be found on the following website:http://www.sefton.gov.uk/contactpoint or for those pupils/parents where this is not practical, a hard copy can be obtained from Richard Roscoe, Information Services, Balliol House, Balliol Road, Bootle.
