In line with the introduction of new legislation (the General Data Protection Regulation), we arecontacting pupils in Years 7 to 11, and parents/carers of pupils in Years 3 to 11 to ensure we have the proper consent to hold any biometric data in compliance with the updated legal requirements.
Please complete this form if you and your child consent to the School taking and using information from your child's fingerprint as part of an automated biometric recognition system.
This biometric information will be used by the Academy for the purposes described in the School's biometric information notice.
By signing this form, you authorise the School to use your child's biometric information for thepurposes described in the biometric information notice until he/she either leaves the School orceases to use the system. If you wish to withdraw your consent at any time, this must be done so inwriting and sent to The Gatwick School.
Once your child ceases to use the biometric recognition system, his/her biometric information willbe securely deleted by the School as soon as practically possible.
If you do not provide consent we will not use your child's biometric information. Your child will stillhave access to the same facilities and resources as other pupils if they do not participate in ourbiometric information system.
