Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parent/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare. The school recognises the importance of proactive information sharing between professionals and local agencies in order to effectively meet pupils needs and identify any need for early help.

Considering the above, staff are aware that whilst the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 place a duty on schools to process personal information fairly and lawfully, they also allow for information to be stored and shared for Safeguarding purposes - data protection regulations do not act as barrier to sharing information where failure to do so would result in the pupil being placed at risk of harm. Staff members will ensure that fear of sharing information doe not stand in the way of their responsibility to promote the welfare and safety of pupils.
