Supplementary Information Form:

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  

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:

  • Combined Data Protection and Freedom of Information Policy
  • Records Retention Policy

The Curriculum

Full details about our curruclum across the school can be found on our Curriculum pages. Please use the main (top) menu bar for this information.

Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) information

At our school we endeavour to achieve maximum inclusion of all children whilst meeting their individual needs.  Teachers provide differentiated learning opportunities for all the children within the school and provide materials appropriate to children’s interests and abilities.  This ensures that all children have full access to the school curriculum.

It is our responsibility to ensure that pupils with special educational needs or disabilities have the maximum opportunity to attain and achieve in line with their peers. Accurate assessment of need and carefully planned programmes, which address the root causes of any learning difficulty, are essential ingredients of success for these children. These will be provided, initially, through additional support funded from the devolved schools budget.

Our SENDCo is our Headteacher Ruth Nelmes.  For contact details, please contact the school office.

The Local Offer

In September 2014 a new Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) was published. As a result every local authority must identify education, health and social care services in their local area provided for children, young people and families who have Special Educational Needs or disabilities and include them in an information directory called the Local Offer.

PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools

The Government has provided school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.

Pupil Premium Grant


A full breakdown of information related to our governing body can be found within our About Us page related to the governors. Here we provide information about their names, roles, the committees for which they serve, their attendance as well as detail related to any financial interest they may have and the terms of office that they hold.

Values and Ethos

Below is an extract from that document.

Staverton is a nurturing community that inspires a love of learning and supports children to be the best they can be. Children become confident individuals through experiencing and celebrating successes. We prepare our pupils for life beyond our doors, instilling in them strong Christian values to guide them.

School Ethos Statement


Leading, Inspiring, Voyaging, Educating 

Live Our Values Everyday

Many schools talk about educating the whole child and teaching children to be good citizens; we believe that being a Church School means much more than this. Our Ethos Statement explains that Staverton CE Primary School is committed to encouraging an understanding of faith and the world around us. Within this context, the school teaches respect for other world religions, whilst maintaining Christian values in its ethos and teaching. At Staverton all that we do is underpinned by these Christian or Gospel Values; the values taught by Jesus. We firmly believe that these values are not 'add ons', they are central to all that we do, not something separate. We hope that these values become the children’s virtues.

The school gives high priority to the spiritual development of global citizens, empowering them for the future beyond the doors of Staverton School. The teaching and the learning that takes place, aims to Lead the children and produce Leaders, Inspire our children through an exciting curriculum, producing children who Inspire others; Voyage beyonds the doors and classrooms of school to discover the wonderful world we live in; and Educate every child to be the best they can be, so that they can Educate others in their chosen fields.

Our School Christian Values:

The school community has recently redefined our 6 school values which are brought together under one overriding value, Love.

All our values are explicitly focussed upon over a two year period. They are as follows:

LOVE: Live Our Values Everyday

Respect; Friendship; Honesty; Compassion; Responsibility; Perseverance

Each value is exemplified in school by (i) a Bible quotation and (ii) explanatory statements. The values are displayed collectively in the Challenge Area and in each classroom’s Reflection Area when explicitly focussed upon on a ‘small’ term basis.

Children can earn peer nominated Value Jewels by displaying the Christian value focussed upon within a specific term. Children can also be recognised as a ‘Shining Light’. These are staff nominated awards that are shared in Celebration Assembly on a weekly basis for children who have explicitly displayed the current value.

Our Staff and Learner Values

Underpinned by our school, Christian values, the following Staff and Learner values shape our teaching and learning. We are passionate in our belief that the consistent adoption of these interlinked sets of values will ensure that our school will be a happy and successful place where everyone strives to be the best they can be.

Behaviour policy

The school expects high standards of behaviour based on mutual respect, responsibility, trust, Christian values and a sense of belonging to and being a valued member of the school.

Positive behaviour management strategies will be used throughout the school to ensure this environment is developed and constantly reinforced.  Children's achievements are celebrated in a special Celebration Assembly held every Tuesday. Rewards also include stickers, certificates, praise and the opportunity to share their work with other staff and children. Good behaviour at break and lunch times is also rewarded.

Everyone at Staverton CE Primary School has the right to feel welcome, secure and happy. We say no to Bullying, whether verbal or physical.  We are a ‘telling’ school and ask for all parents and pupils to help us by reporting immediately any incidents so that we can deal with them appropriately.
