The GDPR applies strict rules for processing data based on consent. The purpose of these rules is to ensure that the individual or their parent/carer understands what they are consenting to. This means that consent should be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous by way of a request presented in clear and plain language 

We are committed to the rights of all parents/carers of our school pupils: to have access to information on the education being provided for their children. to be given opportunities to discuss that provision with their children's teachers. to be treated as partners in the educational process.
