Late last term, the school issued a form to parents to ascertain information about nationality and immigration status. This was in line with new census requests issued to schools by the DfE.
Several parents questioned me as to how this information was to be used.
I include a link to a BBC article which some parents may find useful. It gives information about the purpose and use of data we collated and may set minds at ease.
The article is written independent of the school and expresses the viewpoints of the author and the BBCs research and interpretation of it.
I reiterate that the data collected was at the request of the DfE and not instigated by the school governors or other school leadership.
