Sticky Fingers and OASTies
(How we use children’s information)
Sticky Fingers and OASTies processes personal information about its children and is a ‘data controller’ for the purposes of Data Protection legislation. We collect information from you and may receive information about your child from their previous setting.
Sticky Fingers and OASTies Data Protection Officer is Sophie Hanson.
The categories of child level information that we collect, hold and share include:
- Personal information (such as name, address and date of birth)
- Characteristics (such as ethnicity, language, nationality, country of birth)
- Attendance information (such as sessions attended, number of absences and absence reasons)
- Assessment information using the online assessment tool Tapestry
- Relevant medical information
- Special educational needs and details of relevant professionals
- Integrated progress review
Why we collect and use this information:
We use the children’s data:
- to support children’s learning
- to monitor and report on children’s progress
- to provide appropriate pastoral care
- to assess the quality of our services
- to comply with the law regarding data sharing
The lawful basis on which we use this information:
We are required by law to provide information about our pupils to the DfE as part of statutory data collections such as the early years census. Some of this information is then stored in the NPD (National Pupil Database). The law that allows this is the Education (Information About Individual Pupils) (England) Regulations 2013.
Collecting children’s information:
Whilst the majority of child level information you provide to us is mandatory, some of it is provided to us on a voluntary basis. In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation, we will inform you whether you are required to provide certain child level information to us or if you have a choice in this.
Storing pupil data:
We hold children’s data for a maximum of five years from the date they start at the setting.
Who we share children’s information with:
We routinely share children’s information with:
- Settings/schools that the children attend after leaving us
- Our local authority (East Sussex County Council)
- The Department for Education (DfE)
- Health Visitors and other health professionals as appropriate
Why we share children’s information:
We do not share information about our children without consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so.
We share childrens’ data with the Department for Education (DfE) on a statutory basis. This data sharing underpins the settings funding and educational attainment policy and monitoring.

The National Pupil Database (NPD)
The NPD is owned and managed by the Department for Education and contains information about pupils in schools in England. It provides invaluable evidence on educational performance to inform independent research, as well as studies commissioned by the Department. It is held in electronic format for statistical purposes. This information is securely collected from a range of sources including schools, local authorities and awarding bodies.
We are required by law, to provide information about our children to the DfE as part of statutory data collections such as the school census and early years’ census. Some of this information is then stored in the NPD. The law that allows this is the Education (Information about Individual Pupils) (England) Regulations 2013.
To find out more about the NPD, go to https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-pupil-database-user-guide-and-supporting-information.
The department may share information about our children from the NPD with third parties who promote the education or well-being of children in England by:
- conducting research or analysis
- producing statistics
- providing information, advice or guidance
The Department has robust processes in place to ensure the confidentiality of our data is maintained and there are stringent controls in place regarding access and use of the data. Decisions on whether DfE releases data to third parties are subject to a strict approval process and based on a detailed assessment of:
- who is requesting the data?
- the purpose for which it is required
- the level and sensitivity of data requested: and
- the arrangements in place to store and handle the data
To be granted access to pupil information, organisations must comply with strict terms and conditions covering the confidentiality and handling of the data, security arrangements and retention and use of the data.
