About the School

Welcome to Hallgate Primary School

Welcome to Hallgate Primary School’s website. I hope that browsing through the website will give you a ‘snapshot’ of our school and an insight into the many activities that take place here.

Hallgate is a happy and friendly school at the heart of the community. We pride ourselves on the fact that all children, including those with special needs and special talents, develop, learn and grow. I have had the privilege of being the Head teacher of this fantastic school since February 2016. I hope that you will see from our website the journey that we are on to ensuring that Hallgate is a good and subsequently an outstanding school.

I hope that the website is a useful source of information for parents and pupils.
Please visit us regularly to keep up to date with our events, achievements and activities.

Data Protection

Data Protection Act 1998: How we use pupil information

We collect and hold personal information relating to our pupils and may also receive information about them from their previous school, local authority and/or the Department for Education (DfE).  We use this personal data to:

  • support our pupils’ learning
  • monitor and report on their progress
  • provide appropriate pastoral care; and
  • assess the quality of our services

This information will include their contact details, national curriculum assessment results, attendance information, any exclusion information, where they go after they leave us and personal characteristics such as their ethnic group, any special educational needs they may have as well as relevant medical information.

We will not give information about our pupils to anyone without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so.  If you want to receive a copy of the information about your son/daughter that we hold, please contact:-

Mrs V MacLachlan, School Business Manager

We are required by law, to pass certain information about our pupils to our local authority (LA) and the Department for Education (DfE).

DfE may also share pupil level personal data that we supply to them, with third parties.  This will only take place where legislation allows it to do so and it is in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Decisions on whether the DfE releases this personal data to third parties are subject to a robust approval process and are based on a detailed assessment of who is requesting the data, the purpose for which it is required, the level and sensitivity of data requested and the arrangements in place to store and handle the data.  To be granted access to pupil level data, requestors must comply with strict terms and conditions covering the confidentiality and handling of data, security arrangements and retention and use of the data.

For more information on how this sharing process works, please visit:-
