Confidentiality and Disclosure
We take confidentiality seriously and you can come and talk to anyone in the disability and SpLD team on a confidential basis. However, in order to make any reasonable adjustments it may be necessary for the service to pass on information to relevant areas of the School community (such as your academic department, the accommodation office, registry and the examinations officer) or other agencies such as support providers and funding bodies. This would never be done lightly; we would only reveal the minimum information which that person needs to know and disclosure would only be used as necessary to facilitate your support.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 we are not able to pass on sensitive personal data including information relating to disability to other parts of the School without your explicit approval.
