To pass on some of this information to other bodies where relevant e.g. your chosen senior or Secondary School, the Department of Education and Skills, TUSLA, NEPS, School Completion Programme etc. You will have the right as parents to access and correct all information /data held on your child and we have designed a data access request form to enable you to do this. The school intends to become fully compliant with the new regulations and within the coming weeks all relevant policies and procedures will be approved by the Board of Management and posted on our school website.
