Biometric Information in School

Consent form for the use of biometric information in school.

Under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (sections 26 to 28), we are required to notify each parent of a child and obtain the written consent of at least one parent before being able to use a child’s biometric information for an automated system.

Biometric information from students’ fingerprints is currently used by the school for the purpose of administration of the School Canteen System.

Please complete this form if you consent to the school having information from your child’s fingerprint by Neatherd High School as part of an automated biometric recognition system. This biometric information will only be used by the school for the purpose of administration of the School Canteen System.

In signing this form, you are authorising the school to use your child’s biometric information for this purpose until he/she either leaves the school or ceases to use the system. If you wish to withdraw your consent at any time, this must be done so in writing and sent to the school at the following address:
Dereham Neatherd High School, Norwich Road, Dereham, Norfolk, NR20 3AX

Once your child ceases to use the biometric recognition system, his/her biometric information will be securely deleted by the school.
