ePetition details

Safeguarding Children's Data

We the undersigned petition the council to please stop accessing children's personal data (including their health records and photo) on school staff's unsecure, personal mobile phones.

This practice is totally irresponsible, unnecessary and obviously not in the best interests of our children. Veritau have confirmed that this practice is happening in some of our schools and that it is (currently) not a legal requirement to even inform the pupils/parents.

I would like to highlight that Joseph Rowntree School are effectively using Class Charts to carry out their work without compromising children's data. Please can other schools follow their lead and use Class Charts in the same responsible manner out of respect for the children and their data?

It would be easy, simply (and cheap!) to effectively safeguard our children's data by removing the APP from staff's personal, unsecure phones.

This ePetition ran from 24/11/2022 to 05/01/2023 and has now finished.
