I request information on ways to get in touch with my adult students and the parents of my students who are under the age of eighteen. This is so that I can maintain close, relevant contact regarding progress, exam entry, performance and study opportunities, lesson dates and times, and changes to arrangements.
Exam boards often request other information, such as age, gender and ethnicity, so that they can ensure that their syllabuses are meeting the needs of society as a whole, and so they can monitor uptake of their products as they strive to appeal to the broadest spectrum of musicians.
If you enrol your child on a day, evening or residential course, then further details will be required, such as dietary needs, emergency contact numbers and any relevant medical information.
USE OF DATA
All data is treated in strict confidence, and is only shared with exam boards (as per the above), medical professionals (where necessary) and/or other course staff, all of whom have up-to-date Enhanced DBS certification.
