Once you are aged 13 or over, we are required by law to pass on certain information to the provider of youth support services in the area. This is the Local Authority support service for all young people aged 13 to 19. We must provide the address of you and your parents (and your date of birth) and any further information relevant to the support services’ role.
However, until you are aged 16 or older your parents can ask that no information beyond name, address and date of birth (and their name and address) be passed on to the youth services provider. Please inform the school’s Communications Manager, Mrs Clayden if this is your parents’ wish.
