Who we are:
Glasgow City Council is a local authority established under the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994. Its head
office is located at City Chambers, George Square, Glasgow G2 1DU, United Kingdom, and you can contact our Data
Protection Officer by post at this address, by email at: email@example.com, and by telephone on 0141 287 1055.
Why do we need your personal information and what do we do with it?
You are giving us your/your child’s personal information to allow us to enrol your child in a Glasgow school and provide
your child with an adequate and appropriate education. We also use your information to verify your identity where required,
contact you by post, email or telephone and to maintain our records.
If you enrol your child in a Glasgow school, we will (where possible) check our other records to see if you may be entitled to education grants such as free school meals and will contact you directly if it appears that you may be entitled to any of these but have not applied for them. Please advise the council’s data protection officer (contact details below) if you do not want us to contact you in these circumstances.
Legal basis for using your information:
We provide these services to you as part of our statutory function as your local authority. You can find more details of
our role on our website at www.glasgow.gov.uk/privacy. Processing your child’s personal information is necessary for the
performance of a task carried out in the public interest of the council.
If you do not provide us with the information we have asked for then we will not be able to provide this service to you.
We may also need to process more sensitive personal information about you in order to protect your vital interests in
circumstances where we will not be able to seek your consent.
Who do we share your information with?
We are legally obliged to safeguard public funds so we are required to verify and check your details internally for fraud
prevention. We may share this information with other public bodies (and also receive information from these other bodies)
for fraud checking purposes. We are also legally obliged to share certain data with other public bodies, such as HMRC
and will do so where the law requires this. We will also generally comply with requests for specific information from
other regulatory and law enforcement bodies where this is necessary and appropriate. Your information is also analysed
and covered in our full privacy statement on our website. It also forms part of our requirements in line with our Records
Management Plan approved in terms of the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011.
We will also share information with the Scottish Government, the Scottish Qualifications Agency, Skills Development
Scotland (secondary schools only), and health and wellbeing services. We may also share information with other external
agencies and organisations who provide or assist with educational provision and with online payment solution providers.
How long do we keep your information for?
We only keep your personal information for the minimum period amount of time necessary. Sometimes this time period
is set out in the law, but in most cases it is based on the business need. We maintain a records retention and disposal schedule which sets out how long we hold different types of information for. You can view this on our website at
www.glasgow.gov.uk/rrds or you can request a hard copy from the contact address stated above.
