Connexions Service to Schools

At the initial meeting with their Personal Adviser, young people should have the Connexions privacy policy explained to them and be given a copy of the leaflet providing written details of the Connexions privacy notice and collecting their consent to the sharing of information about themselves.

Connexions Services – From years 8 to 13 we are required to pass on certain information to the Connexions services.  Connexions are the government’s information and advice service for all young people aged 13 to 19 in England.

Data Protection – If any parent is not happy about information being held on their son/daughter by any of the Connexions support agencies, they need to let the school know in writing as soon as possible.

Parents can ask that no information beyond name and address be passed to Connexions.  Please inform the school office within a week of receiving this notice if you wish to opt out of this arrangement.  For more information about Connexions please contact the Local Authority as shown above.
