Early Years Providers are required to issue a Privacy Notice to every parent.
The Early Years Provider can provide the Privacy Notice to parents at the same time as other communications. For example a parent might receive the Privacy Notice as part of a brochure or induction pack, and it could be posted on the notice board or the provision’s own website for parents. It is anticipated that parents should generally be able to request to see personal information under the Subject Access Provisions (S.7) of the Data Protection Act on behalf of their children.
What are the benefits?
By providing complete and accurate data through the Early Years’ Census / Headcount data collections, we contribute to the continuity of care, learning and support of children within Liverpool. For example, submitting accurate and timely headcount data ensures accuracy of funding for individual children’s free entitlement for 2, 3 & 4 year old children.
